Georgia gas prices declined compared to a week ago.
Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $2.44 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline.
Monday’s state average is 2 cents less than a week ago, 4 cents more than last month, and 37 cents more than this time last year.
According to Montrae Waiters with AAA, while there is still clear geopolitical tension in the Middle East at this time, there appears to be no immediate threat to crude supply domestically or globally that can support a sustained increase to crude oil prices or domestic wholesale gasoline prices.
Pump prices will likely decline moving into the week, assuming that no further actions increase tension in the region.
Local averages on Monday were $2.38 in Floyd County, $2.39 in Chattooga County, $2.40 in Gordon County, $2.41 in Bartow County and $2.45 in Polk County.
