Gas prices expected to stabilize
Gas prices have begun to plateau for the first time in more than 15 days despite Tropical Storm Irma. Holding steady for five days at $2.67, today’s national gas price average is just three cents more expensive compared to last week. Tennessee's average increased to $2.59 - 4 cents higher than this time last week. “Tennessee drivers should see gas prices begin to plateau soon,” says Stephanie Milani of AAA . And Milani adds, “wholesale prices were volatile last week reacting to the predictions of Hurricane Irma, so drivers may not see prices fall as quickly as they rose.” Tennessee gas prices are averaging $2.59, an increase of 4 cents compared to last week. Hurricane Irma threatens already tightened gasoline supply levels caused by Harvey. At least five refineries in the Gulf Coast are operating at reduced rates, six refineries are in the process of restarting, and five refineries are still shutdown.
