Gas Prices Fall 2.5 Cents In Chattanooga

Monday, June 2, 2014
Average retail gasoline prices in Chattanooga have fallen 2.5 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.40 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 1.2 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.64/g, according to gasoline price website

Including the change in gas prices in Chattanooga during the past week, prices on Sunday were 24.
5 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 11.1 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 0.3 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 0.6 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.

"It's been another relatively quiet week across most of the country with the national average fluctuating little," said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Having said that, some hot spots have emerged- specifically areas of the Great Lakes where prices last week shot within just a tenth of a penny of four dollars per gallon. While that has led Great Lakes and Midwest markets higher, I don't believe the higher prices are sustainable much longer. In many areas that saw large jumps last week we're already seeing relief. For the rest of the country, this week will likely feature little movement as wholesale gasoline prices continue in their funk and as we await the "traditional" decline of wholesale prices to start the summer driving season."

A Thankful List

David Jeremiah said it best, that we have a tendency to concentrate on the things we don’t have rather than what God has already blessed us with.  Perhaps, he said, it is because there is not enough parchment available in this world to record all God’s bountiful blessings should we try to list them. This Thanksgiving let us gather our family close to us, whisper a prayer ... (click for more)
