Gas prices across Georgia dipped slightly during the past week, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists statewide are now paying an average price of $1.95 per gallon of regular unleaded; that’s one cent less than a week ago, four cents less than a month ago, and 47 cents less than at this same time last year.
It now costs $29.25 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that’s $11.85 less than what motorists paid in April of 2019, when pump prices hit last year’s peak of $2.74 per gallon.
Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman for AAA, asserts, “Georgians who decide to hit the road for Thanksgiving will find cheaper gas prices. AAA advises these travelers to plan ahead and take precautions to be a responsible traveler.”
Sunday’s national average of $2.11 per gallon of regular unleaded was a cent less than a week ago, five cents less than last month, and 48 cents less than at this same time last year.
Rome is among the least expensive metro markets in Georgia with an average price of $1.88 per gallon.
