Gas Prices Fall 5.3 Cents In Chattanooga

Monday, July 28, 2014
Average retail gasoline prices in Chattanooga have fallen 5.3 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.18 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 4.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.51 per gallon, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Chattanooga during the past week, prices Sunday were 17.6 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 20.
7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 16.5 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 11.7 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

"The national average as of today has been on decline for a month straight," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "The drop in gas prices during the middle of the summer certainly has been welcome relief to families and individuals alike who are hitting the road during the peak of the summer driving season. The national average now stands at its lowest point since March of this year, and will likely drop under $3.50 per gallon by mid-week. No states in the lower 48 feature average prices over $4 per gallon, and just 4.1% of all stations GasBuddy tracks stand over that level, which is a drop from 8.7% a month ago. In addition, a month ago, nearly 75% of gas stations were charging over $3.50 per gallon, while today we see just 38.2% of all stations over that level- an impressive decline in price that GasBuddy alerted motorists to weeks ago."

Roy Exum: Arnold Palmer’s Greatness

This is hardly meant to be flippant but I’d be willing to bet I’ve been in the presence of more great people than anyone you know. I’ve never ranked them, or ever dared to wonder who was the greatest, such as Muhammad Ali or Elvis Presley, but there are two traits that those who reach the highest pinnacle have in common. First, not a one of them was any good at what made them famous ... (click for more)
