Gasoline price is increasing
Tennessee’s state average gas price is $2.53 a gallon for regular gasoline, or seven cents more than last week’s average, but nine cents cheaper than a year ago. Today’s national average is $2.79, an eight-cent increase since the beginning of July. “Gas prices continue to increase for the majority of motorists east of the Mississippi, while those filling up in the West Coast and Rockies regions are seeing a bit of a reprieve at the pump,” says Jeanette Casselano, of AAA. “Gas prices have increased amid more expensive crude oil prices, robust demand and decreasing gasoline stocks,” she adds. Although Tropical Storm Barry continues to weaken after making landfall Saturday afternoon, the storm may cause major U.S. gasoline refineries to shut down, which will drive up gas prices even higher.
