Gas Prices Drop Three Cents in Georgia

September 12, 2012

For the first time in ten weeks, the national weekly average for regular retail gasoline has not increased, but remains relatively stable.

According to Avery Ash, who is AAA’s Manager of Regulatory Affairs, the national average price is expected to decrease.

“Triple A expects the national average to decline in the coming months as demand drops off following the busy summer travel season, as refineries switch to less expensive winter blend gasoline, and as hurricane season comes to a close”, said Ash.

The national average price of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.83, the same as a week ago today. Georgia’s average of $3.81 fell 3 cents from last week. According to, the lowest price for a gallon of regular unleaded in Elbert County is three dollars and sixty-four cents. In Wilkes County, the low price is three dollars and sixty-nine cents.
