Georgia’s gas prices rose slightly over the past week, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists statewide now pay an average of $2.01 a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline, two cents more than a week ago, 10 cents more than last month, and 65 cents less than this time last year.
It now costs $30.15 to fill up a 15-gallon tank of gasoline. That’s $10.95 less than what motorists paid in April 2019, when pump prices hit last year’s peak of $2.74 per gallon.
AAA spokeswoman Montrae Waiters indicates, “Pump prices in Georgia are still relatively cheap compared to last summer. But there are still concerns regarding the recent uptick in new COVID-19 cases and how this will impact gasoline prices in the coming week.”
Sunday’s national average was $2.19 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline; that is the same as last week, eight cents more than a month ago, and 59 cents less than this time last year.
