Tampa, FL – Gas prices rose 2 cents nationwide last week, as prices in the southeast face upward pressure. Wholesale gasoline prices rose 8 cents in Florida and Georgia, and 7 cents in Tennessee.
Gas prices in Tennessee held steady last week, but face upward pressure heading into Monday. Wholesale prices rose 6 cents in the past few days, raising the price for retailers to fill their tanks.
Gas prices in Tennessee averaged $2.61 per gallon on Sunday. The state average is 2 cents more than a month ago and 53 cents more than a year ago.
“Motorists may see higher gas prices this week,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group.

Tennessee’s Highest and Lowest Gas Prices
“Strong demand and lower inventories pushed wholesale prices higher. The added cost for retailers will likely be passed along to motorists. Based on demand figures, summer drivers are unfazed by higher prices at the pump this year. Fortunately, a potential 5-10 cent increase this week would still leave pump prices below this year’s highs,” stated Jenkins.
Although oil prices held relatively steady last week, gasoline futures surged for the second week. The price for gasoline on the NYMEX rose a total of 16 cents during the past two weeks, pushing wholesale gas prices higher. Gasoline rose in response to EIA data that showed a dip in gasoline supply inventories, as gasoline demand reaches near record levels. Gasoline demand for the week of July 20th, was the fourth highest weekly rate this year.
