Georgia’s gas prices dipped slightly over the past week. According to AAA, The Auto Club Group, motorists statewide now pay an average price of $2.70 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline. That’s one cent less than a week ago, five cents more than last month, and 99 cents more than at this same time last year.
It now costs $40.50 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that’s $3.60 more than what motorists paid in January of 2020, when pump prices hit last year’s peak of $2.46 per gallon.
Montrae Waiters, a spokesperson for AAA, states, “Georgia gas prices saw minimal or no change at the pumps across the state. We anticipate demand will continue to increase throughout the month as vaccinations become more widely available.”
Waiters adds that Georgians could see the pump prices fluctuate throughout the Spring.
Sunday’s national average of $2.86 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is one cent less than a week ago, four cents more than last month, and 99 cents more than this time last year.
