AAA: Georgia Gas Price Average Down 3 Cents

Staff Report From Georgia CEO

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2024

Georgia gas price average decreased at the pump compared to a week ago. Drivers are paying an average price of $3.32 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline (subject to change overnight). Monday's state average is 3 cents less than a week ago, 12 cents more than a month ago, and 10 cents more than this time last year. It costs drivers an average price of $49.80 to fill a 15-gallon tank of regular gasoline. Georgians are now paying almost $2.00 more to fill up at the pump compared to a year ago.

“Georgians felt some relief at the pumps this Easter weekend,” said Montrae Waiters, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman. “Amid rising crude oil prices, Georgia gas price average managed to drop a little at the pump. Low demand and slow-rising crude oil prices help to reduce gas prices. AAA continues to encourage drivers to follow the money-saving gas tips listed below.”

Don’t Get April Fooled By Wobbling Gas Prices

Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline holds steady at $3.53 (subject to change overnight). Pump prices will likely resume a spring increase. The uncertainty of Ukraine targeting Russia’s oil infrastructure could also cause gas prices to rise within the coming weeks.

According to data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand dipped slightly from 8.81 to 8.72 million barrels a day last week. Meanwhile, total domestic gasoline stocks increased by 1.3 million barrels to 232.1 million barrels. Lower demand would typically contribute to pushing pump prices lower or slowing increases but rising oil prices have kept them elevated instead.

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!”
