AAA reports Tennessee Gas Prices Slip as Hurricane Florence approaches the United States


Clarksville-Montgomery County has Third Lowest Gas Prices in Tennessee

AAANashville, TN – AAA reports Tennessee gas prices inched lower over the weekend, as several major storms churn in the Atlantic. Hurricane Florence is forecast to strike the U.S. east coast, yet gas prices have yet to be impacted.

“When a major storm approaches the U.S., gasoline markets can be just as unpredictable as the storm itself,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group.

“It’s unclear what, if any impact Hurricane Florence will have on prices at the pump outside the impacted area. Although there are no crude/gasoline refineries in the “cone of uncertainty”, a major storm like this can threaten the regional supply chain, which can lead to rising prices,” Jenkins stated.

Gas prices in Tennessee are slightly lower than a week ago. Sunday’s state average of $2.59 per gallon is a half cent less than last week, 13 cents less than a month ago, and the same price as this time last year.
