  • Chattanooga: $4.36/gallon, down 10.7 cents from last week
  • Tennessee: $4.49/gallon, down nine cents from last week.

Patrick De Hann, GasBuddy Head of Petroleum Analysis, said while the drop is good and could continue, there are things to watch out for that could send prices climbing yet again.

Motorists should be wary that while the decline could continue for the week ahead, any sudden jolts to supply could quickly cause a turnaround, and risk remains that when the peak of hurricane season arrives, we could see a super spike at the pump.”
