Gas Prices Hold in Chattanooga While Dropping Nationally
The national average price declined by 1.1 cents a gallon last week.
But it remained steady in Chattanooga according to the GasBuddy daily survey of 170 local stations.
Our average price of $2.50 is still 30 cents cheaper than the national average.
"At long last the national average for a gallon of gasoline has seen a decline in the last week, helped by relief in the Great Lakes, where refinery issues seem to be behind us as several have restarted over the last week," said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy senior petroleum analyst.
" Meanwhile, diesel prices have closed the gap between gasoline prices and have been dropping since the end of May. Diesel is just a nickel or so more expensive than a gallon of gasoline and that’ll likely remain for months," DeHaan said.
