AAATampa, FL Gas prices continue falling at a rate of about a half cent a day. The average price in Tennessee fell below $2.00 a gallon last week, while motorists in Florida and Georgia are also beginning to find prices below $2.00 a gallon at various gas stations.

“Prices at the pump are typically their lowest during the fall and winter seasons, because fewer Americans take extended road trips, leading to declines in demand. Plus, oil prices are especially low right now due to a wealth in global supply,” stated Jenkins.

The price of oil averaged $45.46 last week – a minor increase of 30 cents compared to the week before.
