The National Gas Price Average Trickles Lower
Since last Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline decreased to $3.84 (subject to change overnight). The drop in the national average, while small, is typical this time of year as much of the country makes the switch to less expensive winter-blend gasoline. However, the seasonal decline at the pump is being slowed by higher oil costs, which is around $90 a barrel. According to data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand rose slightly from 8.31 to 8.41 million barrels a day last week. Meanwhile, total domestic gasoline stocks declined slightly from 220.3 to 219.5 million barrels.
The most expensive Georgia metro markets – are Savannah ($3.38), Atlanta ($3.34), and Hinesville-Fort Stewart ($3.33).
The least expensive Georgia metro markets – are Catoosa-Dade-Walker ($3.19), Warner Robins ($3.19), and Albany ($3.12). Auto Club Group spokeswoman.
