Not much change in gas prices.
Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $2.00 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline.
Monday’s state average is 1 cent more than a week ago, 2 cents less than last month, and 56 cents less than this time last year.
It now costs motorists $30.00 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that is $11.10 less than what motorists paid in April of 2019, when pump prices hit their peak of $2.74 per gallon.
The modest increase is due to an uptick in demand.
However, prices are expected to trend lower than what consumers paid a year ago.
Local averages on Monday were $1.94 in Floyd County; $1.95 in Chattooga, Polk and Gordon County, and $1.99 in Bartow County.
