Gas Prices Starting To Fall

gas prices2Gas prices fell for the eighth consecutive day Sunday. The national average price for a gallon of gasoline is nearly 3 cents cheaper than a week ago, but 18 cents more expensive than last month. Still, Sunday’s average price of $2.43 is $1.27 less than the peak price last year, saving motorists more than $19 for a full tank of gas.
“The price of oil has not seen dramatic increases in the past couple of weeks and motorists are reaping the benefits,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Gas prices are at their lowest level this time of year since 2009, which will entice people to take a road trip this spring.”
The price of oil dropped like a rock last week, which could signal lower prices at the pump in the coming weeks.
Currently Tennessee’s average price per gallon is $2.19. The low price in Manchester is $2.06 and the low price in Tullahoma is an even $2 per gallon.
