AAA: Georgia Gas Prices Increase Slightly At The Pump


ATLANTA, GA., (November 30, 2020) — Georgia gas prices  increased slightly at the pump compared to a week ago. Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $1.96 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline. Monday’s state average is 1 cent more than a week ago, 1 cent less than last month, and 46 cents less than this time last year.

It now costs motorists $29.40 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that is $11.70 less than what motorists paid in April of 2019, when pump prices hit their peak of $2.74 per gallon.

“Georgians who decided to hit the road for Thanksgiving found cheaper gas prices,” said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Despite the weekly increase, gas prices are more than likely to remain cheap through the end of the year.”


Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has increased by 1 cent to $2.12. In its latest report, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) measured demand, for the week ending November 13, at 8.2 million barrels a day. That is not only a weekly decrease, but the lowest demand reading since mid-June. As demand dipped, U.S. gasoline stocks increased to nearly 228 million barrels. Americans can expect gas prices to continue to push less expensive heading into December.
