Gas Prices Drop 6.3 Cents In Chattanooga

Monday, August 12, 2013

Average retail gasoline prices in Chattanooga have fallen 6.3 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.24 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 5.0 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.58 per gallon, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Chattanooga during the past week, prices Sunday were 14.9 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 7.2 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 1.2 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 9.1 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

"While gas prices in Anderson, SC have hit $2.99/gal in the last week, nationally, pump prices have also seen drops amounting to an average drop of a nickle per gallon," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Prices finally have dropped under their year ago values, just in time for those last minute vacations before school starts. The rest of the summer will likely see prices flirting with where they stand today, but more significant relief will arrive around mid-September, when prices nationally could be 10-25 cents per gallon lower than where they are today."

Roy Exum: Two More Kick Out UAW

Woody Hayes, the great Ohio State football coach, used to teach his players to “paralyze resistance with persistence” but, my word, the likable theory has taken quite a beating in the past two years at the NTN-Bower ball-bearing plant in Hamilton, Ala. The workers there voted to decertify from the United Auto Workers union two years ago but getting the UAW out the door has turned ... (click for more)
