Georgia gas prices increased 11-cents a gallon last week.
Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $2.69 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline.
Monday’s state average is 36 cents more than last month, and 59 cents more than this time last year.
Nearly every state average has climbed by double-digits since February resulting in 1 in 10 gas stations with pump prices that are $3 a gallon or more.
Even though Georgia pump prices are trending upward we have remained below that threshold.
Local averages on Monday, according to AAA, were $2.65 in Floyd County, $2.66 in Bartow County, $2.67 in Gordon County, $2.69 in Polk County and $2.70 in Chattooga County.
