  • The least expensive gas price averages in Tennessee are in Murfreesboro ($2.29), Memphis ($2.39), Knoxville ($2.45), and Chattanooga ($2.45)

"No need to rush to the pump, gas prices should get even cheaper as the week progresses," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA-The Auto Club Group. "Prices are still inflated after hurricanes Irma and Harvey, but will keep falling as refinery operations, supplies, imports and exports return to normal. Pump prices have another 20 cents to fall before reaching equilibrium. Expect another 5-10 cent drop this week."
