Gas prices
Fuel prices are plunging. Crude oil was down to an 8-month lows last week, which means the decrease at the pump should continue. Tennessee motorists have seen gas prices decline 19 cents in the past month. Sunday's state average of $2.50 is the lowest since April 12. Despite the recent discount, the average Tennesseean is still paying 16 cents per gallon more than this time last year. The national average has declined 20 cents, during the past month. Last week alone, U.S. gas prices dropped 6 cents, on average. However, Sunday's national average of $2.70 per gallon remains 14 cents more than this time last year. "Tennesseans are beginning to find some of the lowest gas prices they've seen since April," says Mark Jenkins of AAA. "The price of producing gasoline has dramatically declined during the past month, thanks to concerns of lower global demand and strong fuel supply and production. Unless oil prices change course, motorists could easily see pump prices shed another 10-20 cents before the end of the year, and slip below year-ago levels by Thanksgiving."
