AAA: Georgia Gas Price Average Up Slightly

Staff Report From Georgia CEO

Tuesday, April 9th, 2024

Georgia gas price average increased at the pump compared to a week ago. Drivers are paying an average price of $3.33 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline (subject to change overnight). Monday's state average is 1 cent more than a week ago, 1 cent less than a month ago, and 3 cents more than this time last year. It costs drivers an average price of $49.95 to fill a 15-gallon tank of regular gasoline. Georgians are now paying 45 cents less to fill up at the pump compared to a year ago.

“Pump fees typically hike during spring, due to high demand and pricier summer fuel blends,” said Montrae Waiters, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman. “However, rising crude oil prices and declining inventories may signal higher gas prices for drivers in the coming weeks. AAA continues to encourage drivers to follow the money-saving gas tips listed below.”

Storm Clouds Abroad Have Gas Prices on Edge

Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has increased by 6 cents to $3.59 (subject to change overnight). A pop in domestic gasoline demand, and oil prices rising to the mid-$80s per barrel, continues to impact gas prices nationally. According to data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand rose from 8.72 to 9.23 million barrels a day last week. Meanwhile, total domestic gasoline stocks decreased by 4.2 million barrels to 227.8 million barrels. Higher demand and rising oil prices will likely nudge pump prices higher.

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!”
