ATLANTA, Ga., (December 3, 2018) — The average price for gasoline in Georgia is now the lowest of the year. Sunday’s state average of $2.29 per gallon is 6 cents less than the previous 2018-low of $2.35/g, set in January. Check today’s average prices.

  • Most expensive gas price averages: Hinesville-Fort Stewart ($2.52), Brunswick ($2.41), and Savannah ($2.38)
  • Least expensive gas price averages: Dalton ($2.16), Rome ($2.17), and Warner Robins ($2.19)

The average American is now finding the lowest gas prices of the year. The national average price for gasoline was $2.47 per gallon on Sunday. That’s 9 cents less than last week, and 2 cents less than the previous 2018-low which was set back in January.

“Compared to when pump prices peaked in May, Americans are now saving an average of $5-$10 every time they go to the pump,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Plunging oil prices have made gasoline far less expensive to produce. Oil prices sank to 14-month lows, because there’s so much oil in the global market and not enough demand to absorb it. OPEC and Russia hope to change that. They meet on Thursday to discuss a production cut, in hopes of boosting oil prices. A significant cut could have an immediate impact on gas prices, but to what extent will depend on how the oil market responds.”
