AAA: Gas price average up 10 cents in Coffee County

According to AAA the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in Coffee County is $3.21. That price is 6 cents above the state average and 36 cents below the national average, which is $3.57.

Tennessee gas prices held relatively steady over last week, moving only a penny more expensive, on average. The state gas price average is now $3.15 which is three cents more expensive than one month ago but $1.45 less than one year ago.  

“While parts of the country are still experiencing big swings at the pump, the movement in pump prices here in Tennessee is relatively stable for now,” said Megan Cooper, spokeswoman for AAA – The Auto Club Group. “The start of summer is nearly here and it’s likely that increased fuel demand will contribute to continued volatility in pump prices over the next few months. The good news is that even with expected volatility in pricing, drivers are finding pump prices far lower than last year.”

National Gas Prices

Lackluster demand and low oil costs are keeping gas prices relatively stable.  The national average for a gallon of gas fell two cents since last week to $3.57, that’s $1.41 less than a year ago.

According to new data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand decreased slightly from 9.22 to 9.19 million b/d last week. Meanwhile, total domestic gasoline stocks increased by 2.1 million bbl to 220.9 million bbl. Lower gas demand amid increasing supply has helped to limit pump price increases. If demand remains tepid, pump prices will likely fluctuate moderately through next week.

Today’s national average of $3.57 is three cents more than a month ago but $1.41 less than a year ago.
