Georgia gas prices continue to decline at the pump compared to a week ago.
Monday’s state average of $3.52 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline is 11 cents less than a week ago, 59 cents less than a month ago, but 56 cents more than this time last year.
Georgia’s average is trending 43 cents lower than the national retail price, according to Montrae Waiters with AAA.
Declining global fuel demand and summer travel nearing an end continues to influence lower gas prices.
Also, the crude oil supply remains tight.
It is uncertain whether gas prices will continue to fall in the coming weeks.
Local averages Monday morning were $3.48 in Floyd County, $3.45 in Bartow County, $3.26 in Gordon County, $3.34 in Chattooga County, and $3.47 in Polk County.
