Georgia Gas Price Average Provides Some Relief at the Pump for Georgians

AAA – The Auto Club Group –

Georgia gas prices remain unchanged compared to a week ago. Georgia motorists continue to pay an average price of $3.71 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline. Monday’s state average is 18 cents less than a month ago, and $1.01 more than this time last year.

It now costs motorists $55.65 to fill a 15-gallon tank of regular gasoline.

“Georgia statewide pump price averages have managed to hold steady for the past few weeks,” said Montrae Waiters, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman. “Unfortunately, we can’t predict how long gas prices will remain under $4 dollars for Georgians. But, should anticipate price fluctuations at the pump in the lead up to Memorial Day Weekend.”

National Average Moves Up As Crude Prices Increase

Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has increased by 6 cents to $4.18. According to data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), total domestic gasoline stocks decreased by 1.6 million barrels to 230.8 million barrels last week. Gasoline demand decreased slightly from 8.87 million barrels a day to 8.74 million barrels a day. Although lower gas demand would typically push pump prices lower, the fluctuating oil price and tight gasoline supply have pushed pump prices higher. Pump prices will likely face upward pressure as oil prices remain above $100 per barrel.
