Gas prices in Georgia averaged $2.44 per gallon on Sunday after dropping eight cents during the past week, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group.  The state average has decreased for 33 consecutive days for a total discount of 32 cents.  Although Georgia gas prices are 30 cents less than a month ago, the state average remains 18 cents higher than this time last year.

AAA Spokesman Mark Jenkins states, “Motorists have enjoyed a month-long plunge at the pump, after prices skyrocketed because of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.  Oil and wholesale gasoline prices inched higher last week, but not high enough to stop the downward trend at the pump just yet.  Retail prices are still inflated by a little more than 10 cents, thanks to the hurricanes.  So motorists should expect another round of discounts this week.”
