Gas Prices Down In Coffee County

gas pump2Gas prices remained relatively stagnant last week, falling a mere three hundredths of a cent nationwide. Refinery outages in both Canada and Texas have caused the steady decline in gasoline to come to a halt and even spike in some markets.
According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, the economy grew at its fastest rate in two years in the second quarter of 2014. The report helped oil prices rise for the second straight week. West Texas Intermediate crude rose $1.13 last week to close at $93.54 a barrel on Friday.
The current national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.34, down a fraction of a cent from last week. Prices fell 1 cent this week in Tennessee to $3.12 a gallon. In Coffee County the low price is $3.01 per gallon in Manchester and $3.02 in Tullahoma.
