AAA: Gas price average up 8 cents in Coffee County

Gas prices across the state moved more expensive again this week, rising a total of eight cents, on average. The Tennessee Gas Price average is now $3.21 which is 16 cents more expensive than one month ago but 76 cents less than one year ago.

The average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in Coffee County is $3.29, according to AAA. That price is 8 cents above the state average and 21 cents below the national average, which is $3.50.  

“After a jump in pump prices early last week, the state gas price average has held steady for the last four days,” said Megan Cooper, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “However, drivers shouldn’t get too comfortable as crude oil prices moved higher over the weekend following a surprise announcement from Saudi Arabia and other OPEC+ countries of plans to cut oil production next month. Fluctuations at the pump are likely throughout the week as the market continues to digest this news.”

National Gas Prices

The national average for a gallon of regular gasoline rose seven cents since last week to hit $3.50. Robust demand for gasoline and rising oil prices are the driving factors for the recent uptick in pump prices.

According to new data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand increased from 8.96 million to 9.15 million b/d last week. Meanwhile, total domestic gasoline stocks decreased substantially by 2.9 million bbl to 226.7 million bbl. Increased demand amid tighter supply has contributed to pushing pump prices higher. If demand continues to rise, pump prices will likely follow suit.

Today’s national average of $3.50 is 11 cents more than a month ago but 69 cents less than a year ago.
