Neighboring areas and their current gas prices:
Knoxville- $2.49, down 2.6 cents per gallon from last week's $2.52.
State of Tennessee- $2.52, down 3.8 cents per gallon from last week's $2.55.
Huntsville- $2.47, down 3.0 cents per gallon from last week's $2.50.

"The national average price of gasoline has continued its slow retreat in a majority of states in the last week. With a trade deal with China seemingly more and more unlikely, we may continue to see weakness in oil and gasoline prices," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "Of course the trade tensions are not the only issue we're monitoring for now, but we continue to believe that additional slow relief will trickle to pumps in the next week as more refiners get back into the game and boost production. California, the nation's priciest state for gasoline, will likely see average prices fall back under the $4 per gallon mark for the first time in a month, joined by major areas across the state. I expect the bulk of states to see lower gas prices continue just in time for Memorial Day while some, inevitably, will see increases."
