Georgia gas prices continue to decline.
Monday’s state average is 2 cents less than a week ago, 17 cents less than this time last month, and 34 cents less than this time last year.
It now costs $35.70 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline. That is $6.90 less than what motorists paid in May of 2018 when pump prices hit their 2018 peak of $2.84 per gallon.
According to Montrae Waiters with AAA, if crude inventories remain high, especially as gasoline demand drops with the fall driving season, Georgia pump prices could continue to decrease.
Local averages on Monday, according to AAA were $2.27 in Floyd County, $2.35 in Bartow County, $2.30 in Gordon County, $2.29 in Chattooga County and $2.38 in Polk County.
