Georgia, Gainesville gas prices up 20 cents over a week ago

Gas prices in Georgia and Gainesville were at $3.56 a gallon Monday morning for regular unleaded. AAA says the main culprit is the price of crude oil which has recently increased to the mid-$70s per barrel. 

“Gas demand barely budged from last week, yet compared to this time in 2022, it is higher nationwide except for the Gulf Coast, Texas, and New Mexico,“ said Andrew Gross, AAA spokesperson. “Some industry experts speculate that scorching temps in that region are keeping people off the road.”
