Georgia Gas prices decrease Slightly

April 5th, 2021 – 10:20 AM

AAA – The Auto Club Group –

Georgia gas prices  decreased marginally at the pump compared to a week ago. Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $2.71 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline. Monday’s state average is 1 cent less than a week ago, 13 cents more than last month, and 94 cents more than this time last year.

It now costs motorists $40.65 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that is $3.75 more than what motorists paid in January of 2020, when pump prices hit their peak of $2.46 per gallon.

“Cheaper crude oil prices are putting downward pressure on pump prices for the majority of motorists,” said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Georgians may see less expensive gas prices this coming week, but not enough to indicate a steady trend just yet.”


Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has decreased by 1 cent to $2.87. Demand is one factor influencing gas prices. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported last week that demand was up by 174,000 b/d to 8.6 million barrels a day. That reading is just 222,000 barrels a day short of levels one year ago, when demand started to dip. If demand continues to increase, prices could follow. Gasoline stocks also saw a moderate increase with a build of 200,000 barrels a day. However, refinery utilization hit 82% indicating we could see a larger build in stocks this week, a factor that could help keep pump prices in check.
