  • The least expensive gas price averages in Tennessee are in Chattanooga ($2.25), Johnson City-Kingsport-Bristol ($2.27)

“Motorists have enjoyed a month-long plunge at the pump, after prices skyrocketed because of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Oil and wholesale gasoline prices inched higher last week, but not high enough to stop the downward trend at the pump just yet. Retail prices are still inflated by a little more than 10 cents, thanks to the hurricanes. So motorists should expect another round of discounts this week.”
