Gas Prices Fall 2.8 Cents In Chattanooga

Monday, July 14, 2014
Average retail gasoline prices in Chattanooga have fallen 2.8 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.28 per gallon on Sunday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 170 gas outlets in Chattanooga. This compares with the national average that has fallen 3.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.61 per gallon, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Chattanooga during the past week, prices Sunday were 3.
8 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 7.1 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 4.3 cents per gallon during the last month and stands  unchanged compared to this day one year ago.

"The last two weeks have seen some large drops in oil prices and gasoline spot prices- a very exciting thing to see in the middle of the summer driving season," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Motorists have some nice relief coming at the pump to look forward to in the next week to two as these drops make it to retail outlets. Over the next week, the national average will fall back under $3.50/gal- something we haven't seen since April, and will also drop under last year's average in the next few days. There is also the possibility for further declines if we don't see a hurricane or geopolitical tensions ruin things. I'd caution motorists as we expect these large decreases to only buy the amount of gasoline they immediately need as prices drop, and to shop around as price gaps between stations widen because of the quick decrease in wholesale gas price. Some stations will be buying the cheaper gasoline and passing on savings faster, leading to a wide array of gas prices."

Signal Mountain Should Be Problem Solvers Around The City

Re: Roy Exum’s “Stay, Signal Mountain, Stay”  Well this article is something to think about. I think the split could go either way, and Signal Mountain schools would still flourish, as they have done for the past several years. What I'm worried about is why Signal Mountain has not yet had the guts to go be problem solvers at Howard, or Tyner, or Central. Why do ... (click for more)
