Gas prices in Georgia declined by 2 cents last week. The average price for gasoline in Georgia is averaging $2.70 per gallon. Sunday’s state average is 2 cents less than a month ago, yet remains 52 cents more than this time last year.
The most expensive gas price averages in Georgia are in Atlanta ($2.75), Savannah ($2.72) and Brunswick ($2.71)
The least expensive gas price averages in Georgia are in Warner Robins ($2.57), Columbus ($2.59) and Augusta-Aiken ($2.60).
The national average declined 4 cents during the past week. Sunday’s average of $2.84 per gallon is 2 cents less than a month ago, yet remains 56 cents more than last year.
“Oil prices averaged $3-$5 less than the previous three weeks, allowing gas prices to lose value,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA-The Auto Club Group.
“Although prices are lower, there is still volatility at the pump as gasoline demand remains high during the summer driving season and global supply concerns persist.”
Market prices were mixed last week due to higher oil production and supplies versus lower gasoline stocks in the face of strong demand.
The latest supply report from the Energy Information Administration showed U.S. crude production finally reached the much-anticipated 11-million-b/d mark. Conversely, gasoline stocks dropped as demand ramped up.
