AAA: Georgia Gas Prices Continue Falling

August 22nd, 2022 – 9:48 AM

AAA – The Auto Club Group –

 Georgia gas prices continue to decline at the pump compared to a week ago. Georgia drivers are now paying an average price of $3.43 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline (subject to change overnight). Monday’s state average is 8 cents less than a week ago, 53 cents less than a month ago, and 46 cents more than this time last year. 

It now costs $51.43 to fill a 15-gallon tank of regular gasoline. Drivers are now paying almost 8 dollars less to fill-up at the pump compared to a month ago.

“Although Georgia pump price average has dropped from the beginning of summer, drivers continue to worry that prices could rise again in the next coming weeks,” said Montrae Waiters, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman. “Sliding oil prices, low demand, and the uncertainty in Ukraine continue to influence lower pump prices.”

National Average Continues to Decline

Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has decreased by 5 cents to $3.95 (subject to change overnight). Primarily due to stable oil prices and fewer drivers than usual fueling up.
