 Tennessee gas prices up four cents

Prices at the pump continue to fluctuate this week, as gas prices are up four cents, on average, compared to last week.

Tennessee’s average gas price is now $3.13 which is 12 cents more expensive than last month but 89 cents less than this time last year.

Henry County continues to have the state’s least expensive average gas price at $2.91.

Elsewhere in Northwest Tennessee, Dyer County’s average price is $2.96, Gibson County at $3.00, Benton and Lake Counties at $3.03, Weakley County at $3.04, Obion County at $3.05, and Carroll County at $3.07.

AAA Tennessee spokeswoman Megan Cooper says, “Recent lower crude oil prices have helped to keep pump price increases in check, despite increasing demand alongside tightening supplies. We are still very much experiencing the seasonal fluctuation that we typically expect this time of year. As we head into this week, it’s very likely Tennesseans will continue to see a wide range of fluctuating gas prices across the state.”
