AAA – The Auto Club Group –
Georgia gas prices ticked upward but are still one of the cheapest in the United States. Georgia drivers are now paying an average price of $3.17 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline (subject to change overnight). Monday’s state average was 5 cents more than a week ago, 9 cents less than a month ago, and 8 cents less than this time last year. It now costs $47.55 to fill a 15-gallon tank of regular gasoline. Drivers are now paying almost $1.50 less to fill-up at the pump compared to last month.
“Yes, gas prices have increased in Georgia, mainly due to demand ticking up across the state and fluctuating oil prices,” said Montrae Waiters, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman. “How high pump prices will increase remains uncertain. AAA offers drivers money-saving tips listed below.”
National Average Trends Downward
Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has decreased by 3 cents to $3.77 (subject to change overnight). According to data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand increased from 8.66 million barrels a day to 9.01 million barrels a day last week. Total domestic gasoline stocks decreased by nearly 1 million barrels million to 205.7 million barrels. Tighter supply and robust gasoline demand would typically push pump prices higher; however, fluctuating oil prices have limited price increases in some states.
