Georgia gas prices continue to increase. According to AAA, The Auto Club Group, motorists statewide now pay an average price of $3.33 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline. That is nine cents more than a week ago, 22 cents more than last month, and $1.01 more than this time last year.

It now costs drivers across the Peach State $49.95 to fill up a 15-gallon tank of gasoline.

Montrae Waiters, spokesperson for AAA, indicates, “Crude oil prices set new 2022 highs on Friday amid concerns over how a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine could result in sanctions on Russian oil, which could make the oil market even tighter than it currently is. Georgians can expect pump prices to remain high for awhile.”

Sunday’s national average of $3.48 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is five cents more than last week, 18 cents more than a month ago, and 98 cents more than at this same time last year.
