It costs motorists $49.95 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline.
According to AAA, crude oil prices set new 2022 highs on Friday, amid concerns over how a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine could result in sanctions on Russian oil which could make the oil market even tighter than it currently is.
Georgians can expect pump prices to remain high for a while.
Local averages Monday morning were $3.30 in Floyd County and Gordon County, $3.32 in Bartow County and Polk County, and $3.27 in Chattooga County.
