 Tennessee’s average gas price up two cents

Tennessee gas prices saw upward momentum at the pump over last week, mainly due to rising crude oil prices.

On average, pump prices across the state rose by two cents over last week to $2.70.

Decatur County has the cheapest gas in West Tennessee at $2.61 a gallon, with Dyer and Henry Counties sharing the cheapest average gas price in Northwest Tennessee at $2.62 a gallon.

Motorists in Lake County are paying an average of $2.64, Weakley County $2.66, Gibson County $2.67, Obion County $2.69, and $2.70 in Carroll County.

AAA spokesperson Megan Cooper says, “Refinery utilization is nearly back to pre-pandemic levels, and with gasoline stocks seeing builds in the last month amid lower crude oil prices, motorists have benefited from mostly flat gas prices. However, crude started to see some upward movement this week, which could translate to small increases at the pump by the end of April.”
