Gas Prices Rise 0.8 Cents In Chattanooga

Monday, February 11, 2019
Gasoline prices in Chattanooga have risen 0.8 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $1.95 per gallon on Monday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 170 stations in Chattanooga. This compares with the national average that has increased 0.7 cents per gallon versus last week to $2.28 per gallon, according to GasBuddy.

Average gasoline prices on Feb.
11 in Chattanooga have ranged widely over the last five years:

$2.33 per gallon in 2018, $1.98 in 2017, $1.46 in 2016, $2.13 in 2015 and $3.08 in 2014. 

Including the change locally during the past week, prices on Monday were 38.4 cents per gallon lower than a year ago and are 0.8 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 3.1 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 28.8 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

Areas near Chattanooga and their current gas price climate:
Knoxville- $2.00, up 4.0 cents per gallon from last week's $1.96.
State of Tennessee- $2.02, up 0.7 cents per gallon from last week's $2.01.
Huntsville- $1.97, up 1.1 cents per gallon from last week's $1.96.

"The national average price of gasoline barely nudged higher last week, driven primarily by stations hiking prices notably in the Great Lakes early last week, pushing the national average to $2.30 per gallon mid-week before those states saw stations again cutting prices and chiseling away at the nation's average price over the weekend," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "With oil prices sinking last week to $51 per barrel on concerns over a slowdown in trade talks with China, many states saw a respite in gas prices. However, as pipeline specifications begin to shift towards the first step towards summer gasoline requirements in the weeks ahead, the overhang in gasoline inventories will likely start to dry up and push gas prices higher."
