Georgia gas prices continue their downward trend.
Georgia drivers are now paying an average price of $3.77 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline.
Monday’s state average is 13 cents less than a week ago, 59 cents less than last month, and 81 cents more than this time last year.
According to Montrae Waiters with AAA, low domestic demand for gasoline continues to trigger low prices at the pump.
Also, if the global price for crude oil does not spike this week, gas prices most likely will not increase. Whether gas prices will tick back up next month remains to be seen.
Local averages on Monday were $3.70 in Floyd County, $3.72 in Bartow County, $3.56 in Gordon County, $3.46 in Chattooga County, and $3.84 in Polk County.
