Georgia gas prices decreased at the pump compared to a week ago.
Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $1.99 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline.
Monday’s state average is 3 cents less than a week ago, 1 cent more than last month, and 60 cents less than this time last year.
“Georgians continue to see cost savings at the pump,” said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Lower demand has aided gas prices to decline, which will likely last into fall.”
It now costs motorists $29.85 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that is $11.25 less than what motorists paid in April of 2019 when pump prices hit their peak of $2.74 per gallon.
Local averages on Monday were $1.93 in Floyd County, $1.92 in Bartow County, $1.94 in Gordon County, $1.95 in Chattooga County, and $2.01 in Polk County.
