Gas Prices drop slightly compared to a week ago
From AAA Services
Georgia gas prices decreased at the pump compared to a week ago. Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $2.93 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline. Monday’s state average is 3 cents less than a week ago, 23 cents more than last month and $1.21 more than this time last year.
It now costs motorists $43.95 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that is $7.05 more than what motorists paid in January of 2020 when pump prices hit their peak of $2.46 per gallon.
“Although the pipeline is currently operating, some gas stations across Georgia continue to see fuel outages as supply logistics work to return to normal, “said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman AAA-The Auto Club Group. “While pump prices are anticipated to increase due to high demand for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, we don’t expect higher gas prices to deter motorists from hitting the road since many Americans are eager to travel.”
AAA says today’s average for regular gasoline in Georgia is $2.92 while the national average is $3.03.
