Gas Prices Fall 3.3 Cents In Chattanooga

Monday, June 9, 2014
Average retail gasoline prices in Chattanooga have fallen 3.3 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.36 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 0.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.63 per gallon, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Chattanooga during the past week, prices on Sunday were 15.
1 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 13.3 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has increased 0.3 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 0.4 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

"It's been yet another boring week at the pump with gasoline prices seeing relative calm," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "I don't recall the last time that the national average, which stands at nearly $3.64/gal was the same yesterday, a week ago, a month ago, and also a year ago. If you're a motorist, I'm not sure if seeing such duplicity is bad since prices have remained high, or good, since prices are relatively calm. While I continue to hope for an eventual drop in gasoline prices, the more I'm starting to think that we just won't see any sort of major summer decline like we have the last few years entering summer."
