Georgia’s gas prices remain elevated. AAA, The Auto Club Group, indicates that motorists statewide now pay an average price of $3.25 a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline. That’s one cent more than a week ago, 22 cents more than last month, and $1.33 more than this time last year.

It now costs $48.75 to fill up a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that’s $11.88 more than what motorists paid in January of 2020, when pump prices hit last year’s peak of $2.46 per gallon.

Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman for AAA, states, “Gas prices continue to rise across the country. A year ago, Georgians were paying $28 to $38 dollars to fill up a tank of gas, now that cost has almost doubled. AAA anticipates pump prices will remain elevated through the Thanksgiving holiday.”

Sunday’s national average of $3.42 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is two cents more than last week, 18 cents more than one month ago, and $1.31 more than at this same time last year.
