Gas Prices Down Slightly

Tennessee’s state average gas price is $2.56 per gallon for regular unleaded, which is four cents less than the average a week ago and 4 cents less than one month ago.
The national gas price average is $2.86, which is three cents less than last week’s average.
AAA spokesperson Stephanie Milani said that for the first time in three months, gas prices are declining slowly but steadily across the country. She said the move to cheaper gas may indicate that demand and supply are potentially leveling out. However, there are many factors that could quickly push prices up in the coming weeks such as the impact of Chinese tariffs, weather, gasoline stock levels and Memorial Day travel volume.
The low price per gallon for gas in Coffee County as of Tuesday afternoon was $2.41 in Tullahoma and in Manchester the low price was $2.45 per gallon.
