Georgia gas prices increased at the pump compared to a week ago.
Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $1.79 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline.
Monday’s state average is 4 cents more than a week ago, 17 cents more than last month, and 75 cents less than this time last year.
An increase in demand has occurred alongside an increase in the national average.
If this trend continues, motorists will likely see pump prices continue to move higher.
Local averages on Monday were $1.75 in Floyd County, $1.79 in Gordon County, $1.74 in Bartow County, $1.73 in Polk County, and $1.76 in Chattooga County.
