Georgia gas prices are holding steady compared to a week ago, however, the increase is not over yet.
Georgia drivers continue to pay an average of $2.61 per gallon for regular unleaded which is 13 cents less than the national average. That amounts to $39.15 for a full 15-gallon tank of gasoline. However, drivers are only paying 3 cents more than this same time last year.
“While prices may continue to fluctuate, the springtime increase is not over yet,” said Montrae Waiters, spokesperson, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “AAA forecasts the national average should peak at around $2.75 by Memorial Day weekend.”
Compared to last month, Metro Atlanta’s average daily gas prices increased. Metro Atlanta’s current average is $2.65 per gallon, about 28 cents more than last month’s average and about 5 cents less than this same time last year.
