CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – It looks like Santa is bringing us some cheap gas for Christmas.
Prices dropped another 3.3 cents a gallon in Chattanooga last week, according to the GasBuddy.com survey.
The average price now is $2.08, the cheapest in our region.
But you can buy it for $1.93 at the Sam’s Club on Lee Highway.
And you can find prices in the 1-90s from Mountain Creek, to Hixson, Soddy-Daisy, Brainerd and East Ridge.
“As we approach Christmas, average gas prices in the U.S. have fallen to their lowest point in 110 days, just as Hurricane Harvey began causing prices to spike, not exactly the Christmas gift some hoped for, but it’s about time nonetheless,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.
“As long as demand for gasoline continues to weaken, gasoline inventories will continue growing and it’ll be the gift that keeps on giving. In addition, the gap between prices today and a year ago is also at its narrowest in months, highlighting that prices are moving in the right direction for many. As we look towards our annual Fuel Outlook being released just after the New Year, there are some bright spots along with some concerns that lay ahead for 2018.”
