Neighboring areas and their current gas prices:
Knoxville- $2.25, down 1.3 cents per gallon from last week's $2.26.
State of Tennessee- $2.31, down 3.1 cents per gallon from last week's $2.34.
Huntsville- $2.33, unchanged  from last week's $2.32.

"While the national average was overall little changed in the last week, few states saw such mundane moves with average price changes all over the map," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "The Pacific Northwest saw prices rising as refinery maintenance and overall supply tightness in the area pushed prices notably higher in Oregon and Washington while California saw additional relief after myriad refinery issues pushed them up weeks ago. Gas prices also cycled higher in Florida and throughout the Great Lakes while inching lower in the South and East. While we await any evidence of a trade deal signed between China and the U.S. we remain in a period of overall volatility at a time of year we're accustomed to seeing prices fall. Expect this roller coaster to continue- I can't remember an autumn where we saw so many factors that could impact prices so quickly and in such different directions."
