Georgia’s gas prices have held steady over the past month, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group. Sunday’s state average was $2.70 a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline; that’s the same as last week, one cent less than last month, and $1.08 more than at this 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 2020, when pump prices hit last year’s peak of $2.46 per gallon.
Montrae Waiters, a spokesperson for AAA, indicates, “Nationally, both demand and supply have steadily increased in the past five weeks, but weekly gasoline supply in Georgia is trending less substantial. It’s possible the state average could increase in the coming weeks as summer approaches and more drivers take to the roads.”
Sunday’s national average of $2.90 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is two cents more than a week ago, three cents more than last month, and $1.12 more than at this same time last year.
