Georgia’s gas prices rose slightly over the past week, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists statewide now pay an average price of $2.00 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline. That’s a cent more than a week ago, two cents less than last month, and 56 cents less than this time last year.
It now costs $30.00 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that’s $11.10 less than what motorists paid in April of 2019, when pump prices hit last year’s peak of $2.74 per gallon.
AAA spokeswoman Montrae Waiters says, “Georgians saw a modest increase at the pump this week. The uptick in demand has helped to lift the gas prices, which continue to trend lower than what consumers paid a year ago.”
Sunday’s national average of $2.19 a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline was one cent more than a week ago, three cents less than last month, and 46 cents less than this time last year.
