Georgia’s gas prices held steady over the past week, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists statewide continue to pay the average price of $3.25 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline; that’s 15 cents more than last month and $1.28 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, asserts, “Georgia statewide pump price averages have managed to remain stable for the past few weeks. Crude oil prices are still elevated, which impacts the cost of gas.”
Georgians can anticipate prices to remain elevated through the Thanksgiving holiday, adds Waiters.
Sunday’s national average of $3.41 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is a cent less than a week ago, 12 cents more than a month ago, and $1.29 more than at this same time last year.
