Georgia’s gas prices dipped slightly during the past week, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group. The state’s average is now $2.95 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline. That’s one cent less than last week and last month, but 91 cents more than this time last year.
It now costs $44.25 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that’s $7.35 more than what motorists paid in January of 2020, when pump prices hit last year’s peak of $2.46 per gallon.
Montrae Waiters, spokesperson for AAA, asserts that her organization is not making any travel predictions for Labor Day weekend. However, she states, “This year pump prices could possibly push even lower with rising concerns of the COVID-19 Delta variant, which may cause Georgians to rethink their road trips. For those who still plan to travel, AAA recommends following the guidelines outlined by the CDC and to also monitor the case counts where they plan to visit.”
Sunday’s national average of $3.15 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is a cent less than last week and last month, but 92 cents more than at this same time last year.
