Georgia Governor Brian Kemp suspended the state’s gas tax Friday through the end of May to give motorists some relief at the gas pumps.

Today’s state average is $4.14 a gallon for regular unleaded, which is 15 cents less than it was a week ago.  The cheapest price for gas this morning in Augusta was $3.59 at some stations. This week’s decline is primarily due to a drop in demand, as well as a decrease in crude oil prices. Gas prices are now $1.40 a gallon more than they were at this time last year.
