Nashville, TN – Tennessee gas prices now average the lowest of 2018. Sunday’s state average of $2.24 is 10 cents less than a week ago, and the lowest daily average price since December.
Tennessee gas prices have declined the past seven weeks. The state average has slipped 52 consecutive days, for a total of 45 cents.
On average, gas prices in November were 21 cents less than October.
The monthly average of $2.44/g was the lowest monthly average since March ($2.35). The state average declined a total of 31 cents last month.
Despite the decline, the monthly average was 14 cents more than November 2017, and the most expensive November in four years.

The average American is now finding the lowest gas prices of the year. The national average price for gasoline was $2.47 per gallon on Sunday. That’s 9 cents less than last week, and 2 cents less than the previous 2018-low which was set back in January.
“Compared to when pump prices peaked in May, Americans are now saving an average of $5.00-$10.00 every time they go to the pump,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group.
“Plunging oil prices have made gasoline far less expensive to produce. Oil prices sank to 14-month lows, because there’s so much oil in the global market and not enough demand to absorb it. OPEC and Russia hope to change that. They meet on Thursday to discuss a production cut, in hopes of boosting oil prices. A significant cut could have an immediate impact on gas prices, but to what extent will depend on how the oil market responds,” stated Jenkins.
