Including the change in gas prices in Chattanooga during the past week, prices on Sunday were 39.1 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 10.2 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 17.6 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 26.7 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.
"Gasoline prices, as expected, continued their rise over the last week," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Gregg Laskoski. "The pace in the increases slowed somewhat versus the week prior, but motorists shouldn't get excited over the one week slow down in the rise in prices. We fully expect that as refineries get into the prime of maintenance season, gasoline prices nationwide will continue to rise, and perhaps at the fastest rate we could see in 2014. We're starting to see cleaner burning summer gasoline come in to view across the nation, and with lower production as refineries prepare for an increase in demand and for summer spec gasoline, price spikes can occur."
