Regular gas price per gallon
: $3.19 Tax per gallon
: 29.4 cents (33rd highest) Number of operating oil refineries
Georgia has no operating refineries in the state. However, according to AAA spokesperson Michael Green, its proximity to the Gulf and to other states that process oil help keep its gasoline prices low. The state has the nation’s second-lowest excise tax of just 7.5 cents per gallon. Since peaking in the beginning of April, Georgia’s average gas prices have fallen by about 16%.
