AAAKnoxville, TN – The average price in Tennessee for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $2.60, which is five cents less than last week, two cents less compared to last month, and 35 cents more than a year ago. Gas prices are being pushed lower due to seasonal demand, winter-blend fuel, and falling crude prices. 

As motorists settle into the fall driving season, which will likely decrease demand for cheaper-to-produce winter blend gasoline, pump prices will likely continue to decline into next week.
