Tennessee gas prices are rising. Some Murfreesboro discounters started the week with regular gas at $2.14 per gallon. Monday's state average is 3 cents more than a week ago, 19 cents more than this time last month, and 10 cents less than this time last year.

According to AAA figures, Murfreesboro again has the least expensive gasoline.

The national gas price average has increased nearly 20-cents since the beginning of the year, which is the largest jump during the January-February timeframe since 2015. However, today's average of $2.42, is about 10 cents less than this time last year.

"Pump prices have been pushed higher this week due to reduced gasoline stock levels and increased demand," said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson. "Motorists can expect gas prices to continue to increase as refineries gear up for spring gasoline production and maintenance season."

Moving into this week, crude prices may rise on optimism that the United States and China are closer to a deal that resolves the ongoing trade spat between two of the world's largest economies. The ongoing tightened oil supply, due largely to OPEC's 1.2 million b/d production reduction agreement, and decreased crude exports from Venezuela and Iran could also help push prices higher.
