AAA: Gas prices hit new high for 2019

By AccessWDUN Staff

Georgia gas prices set a new 2019-high of $2.30 per gallon, after rising for the 18th consecutive day, for a total of 16-cents. 

According to the weekly fuel price report from AAA, Sunday's state average of $2.30 per gallon is two-cents more than a week ago, and 16-cents more than last month. Despite the uptick, Georgia motorists are still paying 13-cents per gallon less than this time last year. 

In February, gas prices around the state averaged $2.19 per gallon.  The monthly average is nine-cents more than January 2019, yet 25-cents less than February 2018. So far this month, gas prices remain well below the monthly average in March 2018 of $2.45 per gallon. 

  • Most expensive gas prices: Brunswick ($2.46), Hinesville-Fort Stewart ($2.39), Savannah ($2.36)
  • Least expensive gas prices: Catoosa-Dade-Walker ($2.22), Warner Robins ($2.23), Dalton ($2.24)
  • Hall County's average price this week is $2.26.

"Pump prices have steadily climbed in Georgia, and that springtime bounce is far from finished," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Normal spring factors like rising demand, refinery maintenance, and the introduction of summer-blend gasoline should keep upward pressure on pump prices for the next couple of months. Gas prices generally reach their annual peak by Memorial Day, unless a hurricane or refinery outage threatens supplies. AAA forecasts prices will peak at around $2.75 before summer."
