AAA – The Auto Club Group –
Georgia gas price average continues to decline at the pump compared to a week ago. Georgia drivers are now paying an average price of $2.96 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline (subject to change overnight). Monday’s state average is 8 cents less than a week ago, 17 cents less than a month ago, and 22 cents less than this time last year. It now costs $44.40 to fill a 15-gallon tank of regular gasoline. Drivers are now paying almost $3.00 less to fill up at the pump compared to last month.
“Pump prices have steadily decreased across Georgia over the past few weeks,” said Montrae Waiters, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman. “Declining crude oil prices continue to be the single largest factor influencing gas prices, as well as the Governor’s executive order to extend the suspension of the state diesel and gas taxes through December 11th.”
National Average Drops Heading into the Christmas Holiday
Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has decreased by 14 cents to $3.41 (subject to change overnight). According to data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand held steady at 3.2 million barrels a day last week. Meanwhile, total domestic gasoline stocks rose by nearly 2.8 million barrels to 213.8 million barrels. Increasing supply and steady gasoline demand have contributed to pushing pump prices lower. As demand stays low and stocks grow, drivers will likely continue to see pump prices decrease this week.
Most expensive Georgia metro markets – Savannah ($3.02), Hinesville-Fort Stewart ($3.01) and Atlanta ($3.00).
Least expensive Georgia metro markets – Gainesville ($2.84), Albany ($2.82) and Warner Robins ($2.79).
