Gas Prices
Tuesday November 22, 2016

Gas prices are falling as 43.5 million Americans plan to hit the road for Thanksgiving. In the past week, the state average for Tennessee declined 6 cents.

AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said low oil prices, lower demand and high gasoline supplies are causing declines at the gas pump. He said gas prices should push even lower through the holiday weekend, unless crude oil prices suddenly surge.

Motorists can find gas prices below $2 a gallon at 76 percent of gas stations in Tennessee.

The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.14, three cents cheaper than a week ago. Tennessee's average of $1.96 is six cents cheaper than a week ago, 13 cents cheaper than a month ago, but 3 cents higher than a year ago.
