AAATampa, FL Gas prices declined over the weekend and that trend should continue this week. 

Gas prices in Tennessee slipped 1-cent lower during the weekend. Due to a slight increase last week, the Tennessee state average of $2.68 per gallon is only a half cent less than a week ago. However, Tennessee motorists are still paying 9 cents per gallon more than last month and 36 cents more than this time last year.

Tennessee’s Highest and Lowest Gas Prices

  • The most expensive gas price averages in Tennessee are in Nashville ($2.72), Jackson ($2.71), and Kingsport-Bristol ($2.69)
  • The least expensive gas price averages in Tennessee are in Chattanooga ($2.61), Clarksville ($2.64), and Cleveland ($2.64) 

“Fuel prices plunged on the stock market last week, which should clear the way for a significant discount at the pump,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Motorists should see a 5-10 cent drop or more in the next 10 days. This is the type of downward movement we normally see at the pump during the fall. However, upward pressure could easily return later this month, as the market braces for U.S. sanctions against Iranian crude, and what that might mean for global supply and demand.”
