Gas prices hold steady across the state

By Kimberly Sizemore Anchor/Reporter

Georgia gas prices dropped slightly at the pump this week. According to Monday's weekly fuel report released from AAA, Georgia drivers are now paying an average of $4.47 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline. That’s 1 cent less than a week ago, 34 cents more than last month and $1.58 more than this time last year. 

It now costs motorists $67.05 to fill a 15-gallon tank of regular gasoline, paying nearly $24.00 more at the pump than last year.

In Northeast Georgia, Habersham County has some of the cheapest gas in the area at $4.39. Lumpkin County has some of the most expensive at $4.51. 

Last Monday, the weekly report showed an all-time record high with an average of $4.48 for a gallon of regular unleaded. 

“Georgia statewide pump price averages have managed to hold steady for the past few days,” said Montrae Waiters, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman. “Unfortunately, we can’t predict if gas prices will decline this week, but drivers should be prepared to deal with price fluctuations at the pump for the rest of the summer.”

Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has decreased by 3 cents to $4.98. 

The report says that gas demand experienced a slight drop recently, helping gas prices to decrease slightly. However, crude oil prices remain volatile, meaning gas prices will likely remain elevated

Triple-A says that, “Slower than expected economic growth could cause crude demand to decline, leading prices to follow suit.”
