Georgia gas prices hit a new 2019-high on Sunday. Georgia drivers are now paying an average price of $2.37 per gallon of regular unleaded, according to Sunday's fuel price report from AAA - the Auto Club Group.
The state average has increased 24 of the past 25 days. Georgia gas prices climbed an average of 23 cents per gallon since Valentine's Day. Sunday's state average of $2.37 per gallon for regular unleaded is now only 3 cents less than a year ago.
"Gasoline supplies are beginning to tighten as refineries conduct seasonal maintenance and switch to summer-blend gasoline," said AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins. "These seasonal factors are likely to keep upward pressure on prices at the pump this week. The state average could rise another 5 cents as a result."
