Tampa, FL – AAA says summer may be ending, but gasoline demand is soaring to new heights. In its latest reading, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) recorded demand at 9.93 million b/d, the highest since the agency began recording data in 1991.
As demand jumped, gasoline stocks fell by 1.4 million bbl and pump prices slowed their decline on the week.
Washington, D.C. – I’m not sure who decided to call the Senate’s August work period “recess,” but it could use a rebrand. I’m using this month to reconnect with Tennesseans from all corners of our great Volunteer State.
This past week, I visited Middle Tennessee, and received updates from local businessmen, health care professionals, and local officials who are tuned in to the region’s many successes, and emerging opportunities for growth.
Tennessee’s strong workforce, right-to-work law, and central location make companies eager to set up shop.
Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Senate may be out of session, but Senator Marsha Blackburn hasn’t slowed down one bit! The Senator is spending August in Tennessee meeting with the people she serves and working to determine what she can do in the Senate to make each day better for her state.
Her state visits began in West Tennessee, where she met with fishermen and local officials at Sinclair’s Fish Market in Paris to discuss the problems posed by Asian carp. Senator Blackburn then stopped by UT Martin to meet with Chancellor Keith Carver and members of their Army ROTC program.
Tampa, FL – AAA reports that the average national gas price dropped by two cents to $2.71 on the week. This is less expensive than a week, a month (-4 cent) and a year (-15 cents) ago. Prices are cheaper as demand saw a small dip on the week, even though overall demand remains robust for the summer.
“While gas prices continue to drop, the rate at which they are decreasing has slowed,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.
Tampa, FL – On the week, AAA says all but eight states saw gas price averages push cheaper or remain stable. At $2.76, the national gas price average is three cents less expensive than last Monday. This is the first time in four weeks that the national average has seen a weekly decline.
“Gasoline stocks remain robust amid a recent dip in demand, which could be one reason we are seeing pump prices starting to roll back,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.
