(Media release from AAA – The Auto Club Group):

Georgia gas price average continues to decline at the pump compared to a week ago. Georgia drivers are now paying an average price of $3.04 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline (subject to change overnight). Monday’s state average is 6 cents less than a week ago, 13 cents less than a month ago, and 18 cents less than this time last year. It now costs $45.60 to fill a 15-gallon tank of regular gasoline. Drivers are now paying almost $2.00 less to fill-up at the pump compared to last month.

“Georgia pump prices are drifting lower as crude oil continues to decline,” said Montrae Waiters, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman. “The main reason for the fall is the decline in oil prices. Crude is the single largest factor influencing gas prices, accounting for more than half of what drivers pay at the pump.”

National Average Continues to Decrease

Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has decreased by 12 cents to $3.55 (subject to change overnight), primarily due to declining oil prices.

Regional Prices:

Most expensive Georgia metro markets – Savannah ($3.10), Atlanta ($3.07) and Hinesville-Fort Stewart ($3.05).

Least expensive Georgia metro markets – Rome ($2.95), Catoosa-Dade-Walker ($2.93) and Warner Robins ($2.85).
