gas pump2The violence in Iraq caused plenty of pain at the pump for U.S. motorists last week. Throughout the last seven days, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded rose 5 cents in Tennessee.
AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said the unrest in Iraq is likely to continue influencing gas prices in the near future.
The national average for a gallon of regular on Sunday was $3.68, an increase of 2 cents from last week. Tennessee’s average of $3.47 increased 5 cents from last week. One year ago the average was $3.34. In Manchester the low price is $3.37 and in Tullahoma the low price stands at $3.36 per gallon.
