Georgia’s gas prices rose during the past week, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists statewide are now paying an average price of $2.00 a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline. That’s four cents more than a week ago, seven cents more than last month, and 43 cents less than at this same time last year.
It now costs $30 to fill up 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 states, “As demand continues to decline into the winter driving season, Georgians should expect gas prices to remain lower when compared to last year’s pump prices, moving into 2021.”
Sunday’s national average of $2.16 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is four cents more than last week, five cents more than last month, and 42 cents less than this time last year.
Rome remains among the least expensive metro markets across Georgia with an average of $1.91 per gallon of regular unleaded.
