Georgia’s Gas Prices continue to Decline
Georgia gas prices dropped another 2 cents at the pump compared to a week ago, reports AAA. Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $2.43 per gallon for regular unleaded. Monday’s state average is 2 cents less than a week ago, 16 cents less than this time last month, and 32 cents less than this time last year. It now costs $36.45 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline. That is $6.15 less than what motorists paid in May of 2018, when pump prices hit their peak of $2.84 per gallon. According to AAA, peak refinery maintenance season has caused volatility across the country. Georgia saw gas prices decrease, while nearly half of all states saw gas prices increase by a half-percent or more. Motorists can expect fluctuations at the pump likely through the end of the month due to ongoing maintenance and tighter gasoline supply.
