ATLANTA, GA., (June 1, 2021) — Georgia gas prices  decreased at the pump compared to a week ago. Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $2.91 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline. Monday’s state average is 2 cents less than a week ago, 22 cents more than last month and $1.16 more than this time last year.

It now costs motorists $43.65 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline; that is $6.75 more than what motorists paid in January of 2020 when pump prices hit their peak of $2.46 per gallon.

“Some holiday road trippers reported coming across a few gas stations with low fuel,” said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman AAA-The Auto Club Group. “However, this did not prevent motorists from finding an available pump and filling up.”

NATIONAL AVERAGE STABILIZES AFTER RANSOMWARE ATTACK DISRUPTS GAS DISTRIBUTION

Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has increased by 1 cent to $3.04. According to data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand increased from 9.22 million barrels a day to 9.58 million barrels a day last week. Higher demand will likely contribute to fluctuations in pump prices through the holiday weekend, particularly as AAA predicts 34 million Americans will travel by car – an increase of 53% from last year.

OIL MARKET DYNAMICS

At the close of last Thursday’s formal trading session, WTI increased by 64 cents to settle at $66.85. After EIA’s weekly report showed that total domestic crude inventories decreased by 1.7 million barrels to 484.3 million barrels, crude prices increased last week. However, price gains have been limited by market concerns that increasing coronavirus infections around the world could reduce crude consumption this year.
