Gallon price continues to rise amid Russian tensions

Prices at the gas pump continue to rise for Georgia drivers.

According to the AAA, motorists in Georgia will now pay an average price of $3.37 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline.

That’s 4 cents up from last week, 25 cents from last month, and 89 cents from this time in 2021.

In total, it now costs drivers an average of $50.55 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline.

Experts say high oil prices due to tension between Russia and Ukraine have contributed to the pump’s suffering.

“High oil prices continue to contribute to higher gas prices across the country,” said association spokeswoman Monterey Witters. “One of the ways Georgians can maximize fuel efficiency is to keep their cars well maintained with higher pump prices.”

As painful as Georgia’s gas prices are, the state of Peaches is still below the national average — which went up by 5 cents to $3.53.

The most expensive places to buy gas are in the areas of Hinesville-Fort Stewart ($3.49), Brunswick ($3.48), and Savannah ($3.47).

The least expensive places in Georgia to refuel are the Catoosa-Dade-Walker areas ($3.31), Dalton ($3.32) and Warner Robins ($3.33).
