Tennessee gas prices averaged $2.31 per gallon on Sunday, after dropping 8 cents during the past week. The biggest weekly discounts were seen in Cleveland (-12 cents), Johnson City (-12 cents), and Chattanooga (-10 cents). Here in the 'Boro, prices remained relatively stable with one discounter starting the week at $2.20 per gallon.

The state average has declined for 35 consecutive days, falling a total of 28 cents during that time. Although Tennessee gas prices are 27 cents less than a month ago, the state average remains 19 cents higher than this time last year.

  • The most expensive gas price averages in Tennessee are in Nashville ($2.42), Clarksville-Hopkinsville ($2.34), and Memphis ($2.30)
  • The least expensive gas price averages in Tennessee are in Chattanooga ($2.25), Johnson City-Kingsport-Bristol ($2.27), Murfreesboro ($2.20)

"Motorists have enjoyed a month-long plunge at the pump, after prices skyrocketed because of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Oil and wholesale gasoline prices inched higher last week, but not high enough to stop the downward trend at the pump just yet. Retail prices are still inflated by a little more than 10 cents, thanks to the hurricanes. So motorists should expect another round of discounts this week."
