Coffee County gas price average jumps 16 cents

Gas prices across the state remained volatile last week, as pump prices rose another nine cents, on average. The Tennessee Gas Price average is now $2.98 which is eight cents more expensive than one month ago and four cents less than one year ago.  

The average cost for a gallon of gasoline in Coffee County is $2.93 – a 16 cent jump compared to last week’s average of $2.77.

“As expected, gas prices continued to fluctuate last week, giving way to incremental declines over the weekend,” said Megan Cooper, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Barring any rebound in crude oil prices, we could see gas prices begin to slowly trend cheaper over this week, as refinery activity has ramped back up and global economic concerns are continuing to impact the market.”

National Gas Prices

The recent surge in gas prices caused by frigid weather and robust holiday road travel may be ending. While the national average price rose daily starting on Christmas Eve, when it was $3.09, the steam may have run out as pump prices flattened and then fell by a penny over the weekend. The national average for a gallon of gas rose seven cents since last week to $3.28.

According to data from the Energy Information Administration, gas demand dropped from 9.33 million to 7.51 million b/d last week. Meanwhile, total domestic gasoline stocks fell by 300,000 bbl to 222.7 million bbl. Lower gasoline demand has contributed to limiting increases in pump prices.

Today’s national average of $3.28 is three cents less than a month ago and two cents less than a year ago.
