Georgia gas prices are slightly lower than a week ago.
Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $3.24 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline.
Monday’s state average is a penny less than a week ago, but 4 cents more than last month and $1.29 more than this time last year.
There are several factors gasoline prices have soared this year, such as high crude oil prices and increased driving demand.
