Georgia gasoline prices have held steady for the past week, although they remain elevated. AAA-The Auto Club Group said the state average for Monday remained at $3.25 per gallon.
The current state average is 22 cents more than last month and $1.33 more than this time last year.
"Gas prices continue to rise across the country,” said Montrae Waiters, AAA spokeswoman. “A year ago Georgians were paying $28 to $38 dollars to fill up a tank of gas, now that cost has almost doubled. AAA anticipates pump prices will remain elevated through the Thanksgiving Holiday.”
Pump Price Increases Continue to Slow As Gas Demand Sees Slight Increase
Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has increased by 2 cents to $3.42. According to data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), total domestic gasoline stocks decreased by 1.5 million barrels to 214.2 million barrels last week. However, gasoline demand rose from 9.32 million barrels a day to 9.5 million barrels a day. The slight increase in demand has contributed to price increases, while elevated crude prices continue to put upward market pressure on pump prices.
