Georgia gas prices declined at the pump compared to a week ago.
Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $2.37 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline.
Monday’s state average is 3 cents less than a week ago, 1 cent less than last month, and 21 cents more than this time last year.
It now costs $35.55 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that is $5.55 less than what motorists paid in April of 2019 when pump prices hit their peak of $2.74 per gallon.
According to Montrae Waiters with AAA, increased stocks and low demand have helped to push the national gas average lower this week.
As these trends continue, American motorists will likely continue to see pump prices decline through the week.
Local averages on Monday were $2.26 in Floyd County, $2.28 in Gordon County and Chattooga County, $2.30 in Bartow County; and $2.38 in Polk County.
