AAA: Georgia gasoline prices drop 2 cents ahead of Christmas

By AccessWDUN Staff

Georgia gasoline prices continue to decrease as the Christmas holiday approaches. According to this week's report from AAA-The Auto club South, Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $3.12 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline. The price is two cents less than a week ago, 12 cents less than last month and $1.08 more than this time last year.

Georgia motorists are now paying $46.80 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline - $9.90 more than what motorists paid in January of 2020 when pump prices hit their peak of $2.46 per gallon.

“Pump prices continue their descent, despite a slight rebound in oil prices due to waning fears of a global slowdown caused by the COVID-19 omicron variant,” said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman for AAA. “But its impact on pricing appears to be fading, so it remains to be seen if oil prices stabilize or move higher before Christmas.”

National Gas Price Average

Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has decreased by two cents to $3.30. Growing demand and tight crude oil supply normally support rising pump prices, but fluctuations in the price of oil caused downward pressure on prices. Market watchers will keep a close eye on crude oil inventories.

Regional Prices

Atlanta- $3.17

Hall County - $3.11

Most expensive Georgia metro markets – Brunswick ($3.21), Hinesville-Fort Stewart ($3.18) and Athens ($3.17).

Least expensive Georgia metro markets – Albany ($2.94), Warner Robins ($2.95) and Catoosa-Dade-Walker ($2.99).
