Georgia’s gas prices decreased during the past week, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists statewide are now paying an average of $1.99 a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline; that’s three cents less last week, one cent more than last month, and 60 cents less than this time last year.
Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman for AAA, indicates, “Georgians continue to see cost savings at the pump. Lower demand has aided gas prices to decline, which will likely last into fall.”
It now costs $29.85 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that’s $11.25 less than what motorists paid in April of 2019, when pump prices hit last year’s peak of $2.74 per gallon.
Sunday’s national average of $2.18 per gallon of regular unleaded was a cent less than last week, the same as last month, and 58 cents less than at this time last year.
