AAA: Georgia gas price average continues to fall


From AAA Media Services

The Georgia gas price average has decreased at the pump compared to a week ago.

Today (Monday, May 1), Georgia drivers are now paying an average price of $3.31 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline (subject to change).

Monday’s state average is 6 cents less than a week ago, 9 cents more than a month ago, and 40 cents less than this time last year. It now costs $49.65 to fill a 15-gallon tank of regular gasoline. Drivers are now paying $6.00 less to fill up at the pump compared to a year ago.

In Coweta County, the average price of regular unleaded gasoline is a bit higher than the state average and stands at $3.339. The national average is $3.610.

According to GasBuddy, both Costco and Sam’s Club have some of the lowest gas prices in the county today at $3.24. RaceTrac and QuikTrip are reporting prices of $3.25.

“The decline in crude oil prices continues to be the main reason for lower gas prices,” said Montrae Waiters, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman. “As long as the oil cost keeps wobbling around the low to mid $70s per barrel, Georgians will benefit when they fuel up at the pump.”
