AAA: Georgia Gas Prices Decline 4 Cents

ATLANTA, Ga., (December 6, 2021) — Georgia gas prices decreased at the pump compared to a week ago. Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $3.18 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline. Monday's state average is 4 cents less than a week ago, 7 cents less than last month and $1.18 more than this time last year.

It now costs motorists $47.70 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that is $10.80 more than what motorists paid in January of 2020 when pump prices hit their peak of $2.46 per gallon.

"Georgians caught a slight break at the pump for the past few weeks, but are unsure how long this trend will last," said Montrae Waiters, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman. "Unfortunately, we don't know if concerns of the COVID-19 Omicron variant will continue to push oil and gas prices lower for the remainder of the month."

National Gas Price Average

Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has decreased by 4 cents to $3.35. Crude prices fell last week amid concerns about the COVID-19 Omicron variant and the travel restrictions announced by the Biden administration. With little known about the new variant, it is still unclear what long-term impact it may have on crude prices. Market watchers will keep their eye on the effect it will have on the oil market.
