Tampa, FL – Tennessee gas prices declined for the 10th consecutive day on Sunday. The state average dropped 2 cents last week, and motorists should see another round of falling prices this week.
“Gas prices were knocked off their seasonal upward trend, when new data revealed record-high refinery activity, setting off market concerns of a gasoline glut,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group.“When refineries finished spring maintenance season, they accelerated production to levels that have outpaced demand. Because of this unexpected shift in fundamentals, motorists have likely seen the highest prices for the foreseeable future and retail prices should fall a few more cents this week,” Jenkins stated.
The Tennessee average retail price of $2.15 is 24 cents less than the national average, according to data provided by AAA, from a collection of 120,000 gas stations nationwide, based on credit card swipes and direct feeds in cooperation with the Oil Price Information Service (OPIS) and Wright Express for unmatched statistical reliability.
April gas prices reached their highest monthly average in two years. According to historical AAA data, Tennessee gas prices averaged $2.15 in April, with daily retail prices ranging between $2.06 – $2.18 per gallon.
- The most expensive Tennessee gas prices are in Knoxville ($2.17), Memphis ($2.17), and Nashville ($2.16)
