Gas Prices Rise 9.9 Cents In Chattanooga

Monday, February 18, 2019
Gasoline prices in Chattanooga have risen 9.9 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.05 per gallon on Monday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 170 stations in Chattanooga. This compares with the national average that has increased 3.0 cents per gallon versus last week to $2.31 per gallon, according to GasBuddy.

Average gasoline prices on February 18 in Chattanooga have ranged widely over the last five years:
$2.26 per gallon in 2018, $2.02 in 2017, $1.49 in 2016, $2.16 in 2015 and $3.11 in 2014. 

Including the change locally during the past week, prices on Monday were 21.3 cents per gallon lower than a year ago and are 11.9 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.
The national average has increased 6.8 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 19.6 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.


Areas near Chattanooga and their current gas price climate:
Knoxville- $2.03, up 3.3 cents per gallon from last week's $2.00.
State of Tennessee- $2.08, up 5.9 cents per gallon from last week's $2.02.
Huntsville- $2.01, up 3.8 cents per gallon from last week's $1.97.

"Gas prices have advanced to their highest level in nearly two months mainly following as oil prices move higher. Gasoline demand remains seasonally weak, but last week's report from the Energy Information Administration showed refinery utilization plunging, meaning less gasoline is flowing out of refiners," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "In addition, bullish data and optimism on a U.S.-China trade deal helped propel markets last week, as well as turmoil in Venezuela making a strong case for an larger absence of heavy crudes the market depends on. But while gas prices are nearly guaranteed to be higher in May than today, it is looking more likely that the rise in prices this year may be more muted than we've seen in years past when prices launched 35-75 cents during the spring."
