Average retail gasoline prices in Tennessee have not moved in the past week, averaging $3.17 per gallon Sunday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 3,821 gas outlets in Tennessee. This compares with the national average that has increased 4.5 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.31 per gallon, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.
“The national average has picked up in the last week on the apparent start of refinery maintenance season,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “Refinery production has taken a hit in the last week as companies begin looking towards the summer driving season, utilizing this time of year for maintenance and any upgrades before gasoline demand races higher for the summer season,” DeHaan said.
