AAA:  PRICES AT THE PUMP STALL, WHERE TO GO NEXT? 

Written by Matt Davis on February 5, 2018. Posted in News/Weather

Gas prices rose throughout most of the country last week, albeit by a smaller margin than in recent weeks, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group.  Gas prices in Georgia increased one cent last week, but moved slightly lower over the weekend.  Sunday’s state average of $2.49 is 13 cents more than a month ago and 31 cents more than this time last year.

Motorists across the Peach State are finding the highest gas prices for this time of year since 2014.  The state average for the entire month of January finished at $2.42, an increase of 19 cents from January 2017.

Mark Jenkins, a spokesman for AAA, The Auto Club Group, says, “Motorists got some relief from rising gas prices over the weekend.  The futures market was uninspired last week, and wholesale gasoline dropped a nickel.  While we could see some small discounts this month, those will likely be erased as we move into refinery maintenance season.  Typically maintenance season reaches its peak in mid-March.  This results in reduced refinery output and rising prices at the pump.”
