AAA: Georgia gas prices unchanged from last week

By AccessWDUN Staff

Gas prices in Georgia are holding steady compared to a week ago.

This week's fuel price report from AAA-Auto Club South shows Georgia drivers continue to pay an average of $2.68 per gallon for regular unleaded which is 16 cents less than the national average. That amounts to $40.20 for a full 15-gallon tank of gasoline. Drivers are paying two-cents more than this same time last year.

“High-drive seasons, such as, Memorial Day and July 4 are also times when gas prices may fluctuate,” said AAA spokeswoman Montrae Waiters in the weekly report.  “AAA forecasts the national average should peak at around $2.75.”

In its latest weekly petroleum status report, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) released new data that shows a slight decrease in demand. The estimate is approximately 9.42 million b/d, a decline of nearly 0.4 million b/d from the previous week. EIA also reported that total gasoline inventories dropped by 1.2 million barrels and crude oil inventories dropped by 1.4 million bbl. Crude imports to the U.S. also slowed, the most recent week's import rate of 5.992 million b/d is almost 2 million b/d lower than they saw the same week last year. Should crude oil and gasoline stocks continue to drop and supply tighten then drivers could see gas prices continue to rise in the coming weeks.
