Georgia gas prices increased at the pump compared to a week ago.
Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $2.57 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline.
Monday’s state average is 6 cents more than a week ago, 33 cents more than last month, and 29 cents more than this time last year.
Because U.S. crude production was offline due to the Gulf Coast winter storm we can expect gas prices to be impacted and Georgians should anticipate pump prices to rise this coming week.
Local averages on Monday were $2.53 in Floyd County, $2.56 in Bartow County, $2.55 in Gordon County, $2.49 in Chattooga County and $2.48 in Polk County.
