Weekly Gas Prices

gas prices 5Gas prices continue to fluctuate as refineries begin to move out of the spring maintenance season and prepare for the summer driving season. The national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $2.39, down a fraction of a cent from last week. Motorists continue to enjoy significant year-over-year savings, paying $1.24 per gallon less than last year.
“There is a real possibility we could see prices drop to nearly $2 in some regions,” said Josh Carrasco, spokesperson, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Cheap crude oil should continue to place downward pressure on gas prices, barring any unforeseen events, such as refinery outages or hurricanes.”
The EIA has forecast a national average of $2.45 for April through September, and an average of $2.40 for the 2015 calendar year.
In Tennessee, the average price per gallon is $2.14, 1 cent less than last week and $1.33 less than a year ago.
