Tuesday, September 4, 2012

Average retail gasoline prices in Chattanooga have risen 2.1 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.59 per gallon on Monday. This compares with the national average that has increased 1.4 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.80 per gallon, according to gasoline price website ChattanoogaGasPrices.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Chattanooga during the past week, prices Monday were 8.2 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 29.1 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 20.3 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 12.9 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.

"Like all diet programs, you may not see immediate loss in the short term, but we'll likely see some loss in the longer term, say the next several weeks, as factors align in motorists favor- specifically as Isaac has exited without much ado, demand to see seasonal decline, and with cheaper to produce winter-spec higher RVP gasoline coming, there's light at the end of the tunnel."
