Areas near Chattanooga and their current gas price climate:
Knoxville- $2.27, up 3.8 cents per gallon from last week's $2.23.
State of Tennessee- $2.25 up 2.8 cents per gallon from last week's $2.22.
Huntsville- $2.23, up 3.5 cents per gallon from last week's $2.19.

"It's mostly a happy New Year as gas prices remain in the low-to-mid $2 per gallon range, but it's not quite as happy as could be as it's the priciest start to a New Year since 2014," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "2017 wrapped up a fairly tame year, but keep in mind oil prices are among the highest we've witnessed in over two years, and we're in the middle of a severe cold snap, one which is likely to drive up demand for heating oil, propane and other petroleum products, which is certainly a bullish start to the year. GasBuddy's 2018 Annual Fuel Outlook, being released tomorrowmorning, will be giving motorists a good look at what to expect in the year ahead. In looking at our own report card from our 2017 Fuel Outlook, we had forecast a yearly average gas price of $2.49 per gallon, and were less than 10 cents away from hitting it head on. Anyone who's got a tank to fill- whether gas or diesel- will want to stay in the know for what's coming in the year ahead."
