AAA reports Tennessee Gas Prices remain Steady

 

AAANashville, TN – The Tennessee Gas Price average is now $1.91 – a penny increase over last week. Today’s state average is down one penny from last month and nearly 39 cents cheaper than this time last year. 

“Gasoline stocks hit their lowest level since the pandemic began and demand dipped on the week, down to 8.6 million b/d,” said Megan Cooper, spokesperson, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “These decreases typically lead to cheaper pump prices, but this summer we’ve seen atypical gas price trends.”

National Oil Market Dynamics

At the end of Friday’s formal trading session, WTI decreased by 48 cents to settle at $42.34 per barrel. Crude prices were supported by growth in the strength of the U.S. dollar. Additionally, domestic crude prices decreased despite EIA’s weekly report revealing that total domestic inventories decreased by 1.6 million bbl last week, lowering total stocks to 512.5 million bbl.

For this week, crude prices could increase, depending on the impact of Hurricane Laura and Tropical Storm Marcos. If crude production continues to decrease and stays offline for an extended period, crude prices could increase as supply tightens.
