Georgia’s gas prices decreased during the past week, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists statewide now pay an average price of $1.98 per gallon of regular unleaded; that’s two cents less than last week, two cents less than last month, and 43 cents less than this time last year. Rome is among the state’s least expensive metro markets at an average of $1.90 per gallon.
It now costs $29.70 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that’s $11.40 less than what motorists paid in April of 2019, when pump prices hit last year’s peak of $2.74 per gallon.
Montrae Waiters, a spokesperson for AAA, indicates, “Georgians continue to see cost savings at the pump. Lower demand has aided gas prices to decline, which will likely last until the end of fall.”
Sunday’s national average of $2.16 a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline was a cent less than a week ago, three cents less than last month, and 45 cents less than at this same time last year.
