Nashville, TN – The Tennessee gas price average remains unchanged since last week. The Tennessee Gas Price average is $1.94 which is exactly where prices were one month ago and nearly 41 cents less than one year ago.
“In a typical year, a hurricane season like we’ve experienced this year would have caused gas prices to spike, but 2020 is not a typical year,” said Megan Cooper, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Low U.S. gasoline demand has helped contain any impact to gas prices locally and regionally throughout this hurricane season.”
Nashville, 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.”
