Georgia’s gas prices rose slightly over the past week, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists statewide are now paying an average of $1.96 a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline. That’s one cent more than last week, one cent less than a month ago, and 46 cents less than this time last year.
It now costs $29.40 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that’s $11.70 less than what motorists paid in April of 2019, when pump prices hit last year’s peak of $2.74 per gallon.
Montrae Waiters, AAA spokesperson, “Georgians who decided to hit the road for Thanksgiving found cheaper gas prices. Despite the weekly increase, gas prices are more than likely to remain cheap through the end of the year.”
Sunday’s national average of $2.12 a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline was a cent more than a week ago, two cents less than last month, and 46 cents less than at the same time last year.
Rome remains among the least expensive metro markets across Georgia with an average of $1.88 per gallon of unleaded.
