Neighboring areas and their current gas prices:
Knoxville- $2.85, unchanged  from last week's $2.85.
State of Tennessee- $2.87, up 2.9 cents per gallon from last week's $2.84.
Huntsville- $2.80, up 0.3 cents per gallon from last week's $2.80.

"The downward move in the national average last week was short-lived with the national average rebounding last week on continued strong gasoline demand in the U.S. which has pushed oil prices back up after a brief lull," said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "According to GasBuddy data, demand last week set another 2021 high, eclipsing the previous week's record as we head into the prime of the summer driving season. For the next week or two, we may continue to see gas prices inch higher, but once schools begin re-opening and vacation season ends, we'll likely see demand trail off, allowing for gas prices to decline gently heading into Labor Day."
