Over the past week, the national average cost of gas showed minimal movement, declining by two cents to $3.07 per gallon. According to AAA, this minor shift is attributed to unremarkable figures in both the cost of oil and gasoline demand. Georgia’s statewide average stands at $2.95 per gallon, reflecting a 3-cent decrease from last week, a 7-cent decrease from last month, and a 7-cent increase from last year.

Pump prices in Columbus have also shifted slightly in recent weeks. At $2.94, a gallon of regular gas is up 2 cents from last month. Meanwhile, the cost of diesel has gone down four cents over the same period, landing at its current rate of $3.95 per gallon.
