Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Gas Price average is $2.36 which is three cents less than last week, but six cents higher than one month ago and 37 cents higher than one year ago.
Despite crude oil price fluctuation and growing geopolitical concerns with Iran in the last week, the National Gas Price Average average has held steady at $2.58 since the beginning of the year.
Today’s national average is two cents more than last month and 34-cents more expensive than the beginning of 2019.
“A healthy and growing level of domestic gasoline stocks alongside decreasing demand are two factors helping to minimize gas price fluctuations,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.
“In the last week, about 32 states saw pump prices push less expensive by just a penny or two or saw no change at all,” Casselano stated.
Oil Price Impact
At the close of Friday’s formal trading session on the NYMEX, WTI dropped by 52 cents to settle at $59.04. Crude prices decreased last week after rising sharply following increased tension between the United States and Iran. With the U.S. announcing economic sanctions instead of additional military strikes against Iran, prices fell as tension began to ease.
If tension continues to cool in the region this week, crude prices could decrease further.
