Gas prices continue to rise
Gas prices shot higher last week in most markets, due to reductions in domestic supply and the oil market's response to the President's decision to leave the Iran Nuclear Deal. That will reduce the amount of oil available for gasoline. Sunday's national average of $2.87 a gallon is 53 cents more than this time last year. Prices at the pump jumped 6 cents nationwide, last week. Tennessee gas prices rose 3 cents during the past week. The average price in Tennessee now is $2.62 per gallon - the highest daily price since November 2014. Gas prices are 52 cents more than this time last year. It now costs the average Tennessee motorist $39 for a full tank of gas, an increase of nearly $7 from a year ago. "The latest figures show that gasoline demand is significantly higher than this time last year," says Mark Jenkins of AAA. "A strong economy is helping to fuel motorists along, as we approach the most traveled Memorial Day in more than a dozen years. Those people affected by the higher prices at the pump, are likely cutting back on other expenses like shopping and dining out."
