Gas Prices Fall 3.9 Cents In Chattanooga

Monday, July 29, 2013

Average retail gasoline prices in Chattanooga have fallen 3.9 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.33 per gallon on Sunday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 170 gas outlets in Chattanooga. This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.65 per gallon, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Chattanooga during the past week, prices Sunday were 12.2 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 11.5 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 14.0 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 15.0 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.

"After an impressive run that saw the national average begin to approach its springtime high, it appears prices have plateaued- at least for now," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Oil prices appear to be taking a breather, but with the peak of hurricane season approaching, a continued upward trajectory in gasoline prices is certainly possible, should we see a major storm take aim for the Gulf.  Crude inventories have also declined four consecutive weeks, and large decreases in crude inventories in the near future may be cause for rising oil prices as well."
