Average gas prices in Georgia have now hit an all-time high.

Today’s state average of $4.29 a gallon is 32 cents more than a week ago, 96 cents more than last month, and $1.61 a gallon more than at this time last year.

AAA says the national average has continued a steady climb due to strained supply and increased demand.  Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in late February caused oil prices to spike.  Officials say we haven’t seen prices even close to this high since the financial crisis in 2008.
