🗞️ The Gist: Georgia gas prices have decreased slightly compared to a week ago, with the state average currently at $3.36 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline, according to AAA.

🤔 Why It Matters: The slight decrease in gas prices is welcome news for Georgians during the Memorial Day weekend, as AAA forecasts a record 38.4 million drivers nationwide.

📈 What’s Happening: Despite the slight decrease, Georgia gas prices remain 11 cents higher than this time last year.

  • It costs drivers an average of $50.40 to fill a 15-gallon tank of regular gasoline.

🔍 Between the Lines: The reduction in crude oil prices has been the primary factor in keeping gas prices stable, while increased demand has prevented prices from falling drastically.

🗺️ Regional Differences:

  • The most expensive Georgia metro markets are Savannah ($3.47), Atlanta ($3.38), and Macon ($3.36).
  • The least expensive Georgia metro markets are Rome ($3.22), Dalton ($3.17), and Catoosa-Dade-Walker ($3.12).
