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

Georgia gas price average decreased at the pump compared to a week ago. Georgia drivers are now paying an average price of $3.22 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline (subject to change overnight). Monday’s state average is 3 cents less than a week ago, 2 cents more than a month ago, and 15 cents less than this time last year. It now costs $48.30 to fill a 15-gallon tank of regular gasoline. Drivers are now paying at least $2.00 less to fill up at the pump compared to a year ago.

“Low demand and a dip in crude oil prices continue to keep gas prices down,” said Montrae Waiters, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman. “If demand and crude oil costs start to rise again, most likely pump prices will follow suit down the road.”

Which Way Is Up? Gas Prices Mostly Flat Week-Over-Week

Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has remained $3.41. Slack demand for gas and waffling prices is the primary reasons the national average is stuck in neutral. According to data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand dipped slightly from 8.43 million to 8.27 million barrels a day. Meanwhile, total domestic gasoline stocks increased by 2.3 million barrels to 241.9 million barrels last week. If gas demand remains low, drivers may see only moderate price increases amid growing total domestic stocks.

 Money-Saving Tips for Drivers

  • Shop around for gas prices. Drivers can check area gas prices on the Fuel Price Finder.
  • Consider paying in cash vs. a credit card. Some retailers charge extra per gallon for customers who pay with a credit card.
  • Enroll in fuel savings programs.

Fuel-Saving Tips for Drivers

  • Maintain your vehicle to ensure the best fuel economy. Find a trusted automotive facility at Repair.
  • Combine errands to limit driving time.
  • Slow down. Fuel economy diminishes significantly at highway speeds above 50 mph. Drive conservatively and avoid aggressive driving. Aggressive acceleration and speeding reduce fuel economy.

Traffic Safety Tip: AAA-The Auto Club Group “Move Over For Me” Campaign

“Drivers, if you see a disabled vehicle on the roadside while traveling, be courteous and Move Over,” said Waiters. “Remember the person who broke down could be you, a friend, a family member, a coworker, or a neighbor. Move Over for the safety of others and because it is the right thing to do!”
