Georgia gas prices continue to decline at the pump compared to a week ago. Georgia drivers are now paying an average of $2.57 per gallon for regular unleaded- 4 cents less than a week ago, 15 cents less than a month ago, and 25 cents less than this time last year. Motorists are paying an average of $38.55 for a full 15-gallon tank of regular gasoline; a discount of $3.45 from when prices were their highest last May.
“Gas prices have been trending lower now for the past month and there are no signs of pump prices changing gears toward more expensive for the summer season as anticipated,” said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman, AAA- The Auto Club Group. “One major indicator supporting this forecast is the price of crude oil which last week dropped by $6 to $53/bbl, which is one of the lowest prices of the year.”
Local averages were $2.55 in Floyd and Bartow County, $2.46 in Chattooga County, $2.52 in Gordon County, and $2.63 in Polk County.
