Georgia gas prices hold steady at the pump compared to a week ago.
Georgia motorists continue to pay an average price of $2.96 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline.
Monday’s state average is 1 cent more than last month and 97 cents more than this time last year.
It is anticipated that demand will continue to decline in the weeks ahead as drivers traditionally take fewer road trips towards the end of summer and the rise of coronavirus infections.
Local averages on Monday were $2.91 in Floyd County, $2.94 in Gordon County, $2.95 in Bartow County, $2.83 in Chattooga County, and $2.93 in Polk County.
