Gas price down 8 cents in Coffee County

Gas prices across Tennessee fell for the second week in a row, dropping six cents, on average, over last week. The Tennessee Gas Price average is now $3.31 which is nearly 13 cents more expensive than one month ago and 15 cents more than one year ago.  

The average gas price in Coffee County is $3.26, which is 8 cents lower than last week, but 15 cents higher than the average three weeks ago. The national average is $3.79 per gallon.

“Relatively steady oil prices alongside continued lingering fears of an economic recession are helping to keep downward pressure on pump prices,” said Megan Cooper, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “The downward trend is likely to continue this week, making pump prices a little less scary as we head in Halloween.”

National Gas Prices

The national average pump price fell nine cents over the past week to hit $3.79. It has dropped daily since October 11, primarily due to lower oil prices and fewer drivers than usual fueling up.

According to recent data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand increased slightly from 8.28 million b/d to 8.68 million b/d last week. Total domestic gasoline stocks decreased marginally from 209.5 million bbl to 209.4 million bbl. Although gasoline demand is up slightly, it remains nearly 1 million bbl lower than this date last year. If demand remains low and oil prices don’t spike, pump prices will likely keep falling.

Today’s national average of $3.79 is nine cents higher than a month ago and 41 cents more than a year ago.
