Coffee County gas price average up 2 cents according to AAA

After two consecutive weeks of gas price declines across the state, pump prices saw varying amounts of fluctuation over the course of last week. We are starting this week only a penny more expensive than last week, on average. The Tennessee Gas Price average is now $3.10 which is nearly two cents less expensive than one month ago and nearly 19 cents more than one year ago. 

The average cost for a gallon of gasoline in Coffee County is $3.10 – a 2 cent increase compared to last week’s average of $3.08. 

“Fluctuations in crude oil pricing brought our trend of declining gas prices here in Tennessee to an end last week. Crude oil prices have proven to be volatile in recent weeks, however, we may only see moderate price increases in the short term given recent increases in domestic gasoline stocks alongside a slight drop in demand, ” said Megan Cooper, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “It’s also important to note that market volatility is likely to continue in the coming months. We typically see pump prices gradually begin to rise as Americans start to take road trips, which drives up demand for fuel. Refinery maintenance season also falls in the spring, which is when refineries will start to switch from winter to summer blend gasoline, which is more expensive to produce.”

National Gas Prices

The national average for a gallon of gas posted a lackluster week, remaining the same as last week at $3.41. Slack demand for gas and waffling oil prices are the primary reasons the national average is stuck in neutral.

According to new data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand dipped slightly from 8.43 million to 8.27 million b/d last week. Meanwhile, total domestic gasoline stocks increased by 2.3 million bbl to 241.9 million bbl last week. If gas demand remains low, drivers may see only moderate price increases amid growing total domestic stocks.

Today’s national average of $3.41 is two cents more than a month ago, but 12 cents less than a year ago.
