Georgia gas prices  declined slightly at the pump compared to a week ago. Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $2.00 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline. Monday’s state average is 1 cent less than a week ago, 2 cents more than last month, and 62 cents less than this time last year.

It now costs motorists $30.00 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that is $11.10 less than what motorists paid in April of 2019, when pump prices hit their peak of $2.74 per gallon.

“Decreasing demand for gasoline contributed to the drop in pump prices this week,” said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “If demand continues to drop, pump prices could push cheaper in the coming week.”
