Georgia gas prices experienced a slight increase compared to a week ago. Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $3.71 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline. Monday’s state average is 1 cent more than a week ago, 28 cents less than last month and $1.01 more than this time last year.
It now costs motorists $55.65 to fill a 15-gallon tank of regular gasoline.
“Georgia gas prices saw minimal or no change at the pumps across the state,” said Montrae Waiters, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman. “Concerns regarding increased global oil prices and the uptick in demand has caused a slight rise in pump prices.”
Gas Prices Stabilize As Demand and Oil Cost Rebound
Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has increased by 4 cents to $4.12. According to data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gasoline demand increased slightly from 8.5 million barrels a day to 8.73 million barrels a day. Although supply and demand factors would have typically supported elevated pump prices, the fluctuating oil price continues to be the main factor influencing prices at the pump.
Most expensive Georgia metro markets – Atlanta ($3.75), Augusta-Aiken ($3.71) and Savannah ($3.70).
Least expensive Georgia metro markets – Warner Robins ($3.62), Rome ($3.63) and Catoosa-Dade-Walker ($3.65).
