Georgia gas prices increased at the pump compared to a week ago. Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $2.04 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline. Monday’s state average is 5 cents more than a week ago, 5 cents more than last month, and 36 cents less than this time last year.
It now costs motorists $30.60 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline.
“Pump prices increased due to anticipation of the disruption to operations at refineries and gasoline distribution along Hurricane Laura’s path,” said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “However, lower than usual demand and ample stock levels will contain any significant gas price increases to impacted areas. As damage is assessed, we will have a better idea of how long motorists in impacted areas will see more expensive prices.”
