AAA: GEORGIA PUMP PRICES INCREASE 4 CENTS

ATLANTA, Ga., (December 30, 2019) — Georgia gas prices increased slightly at the start of the work week. Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $2.42 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline. Monday's state average is 4 cents more than a week ago, 3 cents less than last month, and 33 cents more than this time last year.

It now costs $36.30 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline. That is $6.30 less than what motorists paid in May of 2018, when pump prices hit their peak of $2.84 per gallon.

"AAA forecasts that 104 million Americans will travel by car – the most on record – for a year-end holiday," said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. "The substantial number of motorists has caused some state averages to increase heading into the holiday week, but these jumps aren't big and won't last long or linger past the holiday season."

National Average

Today's national average is $2.57, which is 3 cents more than last week, and 1 cent less than a month ago. While the national gas price average increased marginally, it is noticeably less expensive as compared to last year's holidays – by nearly 21 cents. This is a welcome relief for motorist hitting the road for end of year travel.

Regional Prices

  • Most expensive Georgia metro markets – Savannah ($2.48), Brunswick ($2.47), and Atlanta-Hinesville-Fort Stewart ($2.43).
  • Least expensive Georgia metro markets – Catoosa-Dade-Walker ($2.35), Rome ($2.36), and Augusta-Aiken ($2.38).
