Georgia gas prices continue to decline. Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $2.52 per gallon for regular unleaded. Monday’s state average is 5 cents less than a week ago, 18 cents less than this time last month, and 26 cents less than this time last year.
It now costs $37.80 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline. That is $4.80 less than what motorists paid last May when pump prices hit their 2018 peak of $2.84 per gallon.
“Refinery utilization in the United States is at its highest level since early January, resulting in overall gasoline stocks at healthy levels to meet robust summer demand. ,” said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Prices are dropping due to cheaper crude oil and at the same time U.S. supply is keeping pace with demand– an indication that pump prices may be even cheaper this summer.”
Local Prices are $2.46 in Floyd, Bartow, and Gordon County, $2.39 in Chattooga County, and $2.54 in Polk County.
