AAA: Georgia Gas Price Average Continues to Rise

Staff Report From Georgia CEO

Tuesday, April 16th, 2024

Georgia gas price average increased at the pump compared to a week ago. Georgians are paying an average price of $3.43 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline (subject to change overnight). Monday's state average is 10 cents more than a week ago, 17 cents more than a month ago, and 4 cents more than this time last year. It costs drivers an average price of $51.45 to fill a 15-gallon tank of regular gasoline. Georgians are now paying 60 cents more to fill up at the pump compared to a year ago.

“Crude oil prices hovering around $85 per barrel, high demand and geopolitical tensions in the Middle East continue to bump pump prices higher,” said Montrae Waiters, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman. “Some good news is that Georgians are currently paying 20 cents less than the national average which sits at $3.63. Therefore, AAA continues to encourage drivers to take advantage of the money-saving gas tips listed below.”

Money-Saving Tips for Drivers

  • Shop around for gas prices. Drivers can check area gas prices on the Fuel Price Finder.
  • Consider paying in cash vs. a credit card. Some retailers charge extra per gallon for customers who pay with a credit card.
  • Enroll in fuel savings programs.

Fuel-Saving Tips for Drivers

  • Maintain your vehicle to ensure the best fuel economy. Find a trusted automotive facility at Repair.
  • Combine errands to limit driving time.
  • Slow down. Fuel economy diminishes significantly at highway speeds above 50 mph. Drive conservatively and avoid aggressive driving. Aggressive acceleration and speeding reduce fuel economy.
