Tennessee gas prices drop but potential rail strike could have impacts

Sep 15, 2022 | Political News

Tennessee has the sixth-cheapest average gas price in the country as prices drop toward $3 per gallon, according to data from AAA.

Tennessee’s average was $3.23 on Wednesday after entering the week at $3.26. Texas, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana and Georgia were the only states lower.

The national average was $3.70 as of Wednesday.

“Less expensive oil usually leads to less expensive gas for drivers,” said Andrew Gross, AAA spokesperson. “This trend has helped pump prices fall steadily for three straight months and, with fall approaching, more markets could soon see prices below $3 per gallon.”
