For the first time since March, Tennessee motorists are finding prices at the pump over $2 per gallon. Tennessee gas prices, on average, continue to trend upward, rising another six cents over last week.

 The average price in Coffee County is even higher at $2.09 – five cents higher than the state average. 

Tennesseans who took a holiday road trip for Christmas found the lowest gas prices in two years. Tennessee gas prices averaged $2.03 on Christmas Day. That put pump prices 28 cents less than Christmas 2019 and the lowest since 2018, when pump prices averaged $2.04 per gallon.
