Georgia’s gas prices have decreased in the past week, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists statewide now pay an average price of $2.03 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline. That’s one cent less than a week ago, six cents more than last month, and 35 cents less than last year.
Motorists saw plenty of savings at the gas pump from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Demand was decimated this summer, which ultimately meant an increased supply and cheap gas prices. It now costs Georgia drivers $30.45 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that’s $10.65 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 states, “Summer may be fading into the rearview mirror, but less expensive gas prices are not. Moving into fall, we traditionally see a drop in demand and further savings at the pump. This year, that means pump prices could possibly push even lower than we have already seen in 2020.”
Sunday’s national average of $2.21 was two cents less than a week ago, four cents more than last month, and 35 cents less than last year.
