Gas Prices Rise 16.1 Cents In Chattanooga

Monday, February 4, 2013

Average retail gasoline prices in Chattanooga have risen 16.1 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.32 per gallon on Sunday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 170 gas outlets in Chattanooga. This compares with the national average that has increased 14.4 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.48 per gallon, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Chattanooga during the past week, prices Sunday were 1.8 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 18.4 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 21.1 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 4.4 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.

"The national average has ticked higher in the last week, as rising oil prices have put upward pressure on gasoline prices," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Unfortunately for angry motorists, there doesn't seem to be much relief in sight, at least for the time being, as retail prices continue to climb in virtually all areas of the country."

Could The Marriage Decision Spark A New Independence Day?

I confess that this year I am having a hard time with the idea of celebrating the 4th of July Independence Day. It is not because I am not thankful to God for what was done on that day, what it represents, and the blessings I’ve experienced that flow from it. On the other hand, I want to think that maybe this year’s celebration will mark a period in our history in which a new movement ... (click for more)

Our eye doctors say firecracker-related injuries have doubled in the last three ... (click for more)
