Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $2.37 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline - that's a drop in price from last week. Monday's state average is 3-cents less than a week ago, 1-cent less than last month, and 21-cents more than this time last year.
It now costs $35.55 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that is $5.55 less than what motorists paid in April of 2019, when pump prices hit their peak of $2.74 per gallon.
"Increased stocks and low demand have helped to push the national gas average lower this week,” said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “As these trends continue, American motorists will likely continue to see pump prices decline through the week.”
