Neighboring areas and their current gas prices:
Knoxville- $2.41, down 4.6 cents per gallon from last week's $2.46.
State of Tennessee- $2.42, down 3.4 cents per gallon from last week's $2.45.
Huntsville- $2.38, down 2.2 cents per gallon from last week's $2.40.

"Gas prices have remained somewhat stable in the last week, falling in most communities across the country as oil prices remain under fire over renewed concerns of an economic slowdown in the U.S. as President Trump slapped China with new sanctions, driving the worry," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. "There's a growing threat that gas prices may plunge this fall- perhaps as much as 50 cents per gallon by Thanksgiving- as headwinds have killed off any demand growth and gasoline demand plummets after summer. It appears less and less likely that the trade spat between the world's two largest economies will cease any time soon, and that threat will likely stifle gas prices for the immediate future."
