AAA says we will likely see cheaper gas prices this winter.
Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $2.38 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline.
The state average is 1 cent less than a week ago, 4 cents less than last month, and 24 cents more than this time last year.
It now costs $35.70 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline. That is $6.90 less than what motorists paid in May of 2018 when pump prices hit their peak of $2.84 per gallon.
According to Montrae Waiters with AAA, as stocks continue to grow, while demand remains robust, pump prices across the nation are likely to hold steady or continue to drop.
Local averages are $2.31 in Floyd County, $2.33 in Gordon and Chattooga Counties, and $2.37 in Bartow and Polk Counties.
