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

Georgia gas price average declined at the pump compared to a week ago. Georgia drivers are now paying an average price of $3.37 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline (subject to change overnight).

Monday’s state average is 2 cents less than a week ago, 15 cents more than a month ago, and 34 cents less than this time last year. It now costs $50.55 to fill a 15-gallon tank of regular gasoline. Drivers are now paying $5.00 less to fill up at the pump compared to a year ago.  

“Georgians felt some relief at the pump this past weekend,” said Montrae Waiters, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman. “The price of crude oil fell, causing gas prices to follow suit. If this oil price trend continues, drivers may see falling gas prices this week as well.”

Will Drivers Catch a Break at the Pump Soon?

Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline remained the same, $3.66 (subject to change overnight). According to data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand decreased from 8.94 to 8.52 million barrels a day. Meanwhile, total domestic gasoline stocks increased slightly by 1.3 million barrels to 223.5 million barrels. Lower demand, alongside growth in stocks, would typically push pump prices down; however, elevated oil prices over the past month have pushed national pump prices higher in some states.

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!”
