ATLANTA — Georgia gas prices dropped slightly at the pump compared to a week ago. Georgia motorists are paying an average price of $2.89 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline.
Monday’s state average is two cents less than a week ago, five cents less than last month and 97 cents more than this time last year.
It costs Georgia motorists $43.35 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that is $6.45 more than what motorists paid in January of 2020 when pump prices hit their peak of $2.46 per gallon.
“An increase in both supply and demand has helped to limit fluctuations in prices,” said Garrett Townsend, AAA-The Auto Club Group Public Affairs Director. “If production continues to increase as forecasted, Georgians could see some relief by the end of the month.”
