Georgia gas prices declined at the pump compared to a week ago.
Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $2.30 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline.
Monday’s state average is 7 cents less than a week ago, 14 cents less than last month, and 16 cents more than this time last year.
It now costs $34.50 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that is $6.60 less than what motorists paid in April of 2019 when pump prices hit their peak of $2.74 per gallon.
Increased total domestic stocks of gasoline have helped to ease pump price, according to Montrae Waiters, a spokeswoman with AAA.
Local averages on Monday were $2.21 in Floyd County, $2.17 in Chattooga County, $2.22 in Gordon County, $2.23 in Bartow County and $2.33 in Polk County.
