AAA reports Prices at the Pump Drop for First Time in Three Weeks

 

AAATampa, FL – Gas prices have dropped slowly on the week. Today’s national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $2.39, a three cents drop from one week ago; however, it is an increase of nine cents over last month and 18 cents more than this time last year. One year ago, the country was experiencing higher consumer demand and prices were increasing.

Fast forward to today, consumers are still experiencing higher gas prices over last year due to the OPEC agreement, but we are not seeing substantial increases at the pump due to increased gasoline inventories and low demand across the country.

AAATampa, FL Tennessee gas prices reached $2.18 on Thursday – the highest daily average since June 2016. The Tennessee average declined every day since, averaging $2.17 on Sunday.

“Falling oil and wholesale gas prices should signal lower prices at the pump this week,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “However, oil prices have been fickle this year, so motorists should expect continued volatility in the next couple of months as oil prices fluctuate, demand rises, and refineries complete the switchover to more expensive summer blends.”
