AAA: Georgia Gas Price Average Declined

Staff Report From Georgia CEO

Tuesday, June 11th, 2024

The Georgia gas price average decreased at the pump compared to a week ago. Georgians are paying an average price of $3.29 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline (subject to change overnight). Monday's state average is 7 cents less than a week ago, 14 cents less than a month ago, and 2 cents more than this time last year. It costs drivers an average price of $49.35 to fill a 15-gallon tank of regular gasoline. Georgians are now paying approximately $2.00 less to fill up at the pump compared to a month ago.

“The drop in gas prices is a welcome relief to Georgians,” said Montrae Waiters, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman. With crude oil prices remaining low, an abundance of gas supply, and meager demand, all keep fuel costs low. But let's not get too comfortable, the summer travel season is just around the corner, and that could mean our gas prices may go back up!”

AAA continues to encourage drivers to take advantage of the money-saving gas tips listed below.


Drop in Pump Prices Accelerates as Summer Approaches

Gasoline prices took another trip south this week. Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline decreased by 9 cents to $3.44 (subject to change overnight). This drop in pump prices seems to hold a firm, robust grip for now. According to data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand dipped from 9.14 barrels a day to 8.94 last week. Meanwhile, total domestic gasoline stocks jumped from 228.8 to 230.9 million barrels. Tepid gasoline demand, increasing supply, and falling oil costs will likely lead to falling pump prices.

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.

Traffic Safety Tip: AAA-The Auto Club Group “Move Over For Me” Campaign

“Drivers, if you see a disabled vehicle on the roadside while traveling, be courteous and Move Over,” said Waiters. “Remember the person who broke down could be you, a friend, a family member, a coworker, or a neighbor. Move Over for the safety of others and because it is the right thing to do!”
