Chattanooga Gas Prices still Climbing

The average price of gasoline in the city is $3.27 per gallon today.

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) — Gas prices are up again this week, with Chattanooga averaging $3.27 per gallon today. Gas prices have been rising since the start of the year, according to GasBuddy.

GasBuddy reveals that Chattanooga gas prices rose an average of $0.14 this past week.

On December 26, 2022, Chattanooga gas prices averaged $2.58 per gallon.

GasBuddy showed that Chattanooga gas prices are $0.52 per gallon higher than a month ago.

The national average price of gas is averaging $3.49 per gallon today.

“The national average price of gasoline has risen for the fifth straight week as retailers pass along the rise in wholesale gasoline prices due to continued challenges: refinery utilization that still hasn’t fully recovered from December’s cold weather, and refinery maintenance season that’s just around the corner,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy.

He continued, “There appears to be little good news on the gas price front, with prices unlikely to turn around any time soon. Because of the surge in prices last spring, many refineries that had planned maintenance deferred maintenance until 2023. With the can kicked to this year, we may have similar challenges producing enough refined products to meet demand, especially with the European Union cutting off refined products from Russia starting February 5.”

GasBuddy uses data from 170 gas stations in Chattanooga, and over 150,000 gas stations in the U.S.
