Georgia gas prices increased slightly at the pump compared to a week ago.
Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $1.96 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline.
Monday’s state average is 1 cent more than a week ago, 1 cent less than last month, and 46 cents less than this time last year.
It now costs motorists $29.40 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that is $11.70 less than what motorists paid in April of 2019 when pump prices hit their peak of $2.74 per gallon.
Despite the weekly increase, gas prices are more than likely to remain cheap through the end of the year.
Local averages on Monday, according to AAA, were $1.88 in Floyd County, $1.90 in Gordon County, $1.91 in Bartow County and Polk County, and $1.93 in Chattooga County.
