Georgia’s gas prices declined again during the past week, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists across the state now pay the average price of $3.12 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline. That’s two cents less than a week ago, 12 cents less than last month, and $1.08 more than at this time last year.
It now costs $46.80 to fill up a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that is $9.90 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 spokeswoman for AAA, indicates, “Pump prices continue their descent, despite a slight rebound in oil prices due to waning fears of a global slowdown caused by the COVID-19 omicron variant. But its impact on pricing appears to be fading, so it remains to be seen if oil prices stabilize or move higher before Christmas.”
Sunday’s national average of $3.30 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is two cents less than a week ago, 11 cents less than last month, and $1.09 more than at this same time last year.
