Gas prices rise statewide, spike in Lansing area

  • Local gas prices drop another 9.3 cents per gallon

Mark Jenkins, a spokesman for AAA and the Auto Club Group, said he expected prices to continue to drop across the Sunshine State.

The online fuel price service GasBuddy.com said today that Chattanooga gas prices average 24 cents per gallon less than the USA average of $2.45 per gallon. That compared to the national average which dropped 1.6 cents to $2.45 per gallon.

Gas prices in Florida are shaking off more of the hurricane Harvey and Irma run-up, declining 25 cents in the past month since the storms.

The average price at the pump has now dropped by about a quarter in Florida over the last month - including 31 straight days of declines.

Meanwhile, for the first time since Harvey (limited supply) and Irma (increased demand) caused prices to skyrocket across Florida in late August and early September, the state average ($2.46) fell below the national average ($2.47). The Great Lakes, which saw a large uptick, will likely lead the nation this week with declines.


Gas prices are on a downward tear post-hurricane. Retail prices are still inflated by a little more than 10 cents, thanks to the hurricanes.

Analysts predict motorists can expect more of the same in the coming week.

"Florida and the Southeastern states that accepted so numerous Florida people who were fleeing from their homes, they had the impact as well", Williams said.

Including the change in gas prices in Wyoming during the past week, prices yesterday were 24.1 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 11.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. Florida's most expensive gas is in Miami and West Palm Beach, while the cheapest fuel can be found in the Tampa Bay and Orlando areas.
