Georgia gas prices continue to increase little by little each week as demand teeters.

“Demand levels are likely to ebb and flow in the coming weeks as people continue to be cautious about travel,” said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “As a result, pump prices will likely continue to increase through the end of July.”
