Georgia gas prices decreased slightly at the pump compared to a week ago.

Georgia drivers are now paying an average price of $3.27 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline, which is 2 cents less than a week ago. That is 1 cent more than a month ago, and $1.14 less than this time last year. It now costs an average of $48.75 to fill a 15-gallon tank of regular gasoline. Drivers are now paying almost $18.00 less to fill up at the pump compared to a year ago. The national average for a regular gallon of gasoline has seen no movement since last Monday. It continues to hold steady at $3.57 compared to a week ago.

Local averages on Monday were $3.16 in Floyd County, $3.18 in Chattooga County, $3.19 in Gordon County, $3.21 in Polk County, and $3.23 in Bartow County.

“The crude oil market volatility continues to be the leading cause for lower gas prices in Georgia,” said Montrae Waiters, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman. “However, AAA anticipates nearly 1.4 million Georgians will take a road trip for the Independence Day weekend, pushing demand higher.  Typically, when demand increases gas prices follow suit, therefore drivers could see prices increase in the next couple of weeks.”
