Gas prices continue an upward trend

By AccessWDUN Staff

Georgia gas prices increased at the pump compared to a week ago. 

Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $1.92 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline. Monday's state average is 2 cents more than a week ago, 22 cents more than last month, and 52 cents less than this time last year.

It now costs motorists $28.80 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that is $12.30 less than what motorists paid in April of 2019, when pump prices hit their peak of $2.74 per gallon.

“As Americans drive more, they are re-fueling gasoline demand levels, which is helping to lift pump prices,” AAA spokeswoman Montrae Waiters said. “Higher demand will contribute to increasing gas prices in the coming weeks, but they aren’t going to spike to typical summer prices. That’s because demand won’t be sufficient enough to drive down stocks levels.”

Gainesville has the state's least expensive gas at an average of $1.85 per gallon. Athens prices average $1.87 per gallon. The most expensive gas in the state is in Savannah and Brunswick, over on the Georgia coast.
