Gas prices decreasing to pre-Harvey levels

Amarillo Average Gas Price Rise to $2.22/g

The average price of regular gas in Chattanooga dropped by 8.6 cents per gallon in the past week to $2.11 per gallon on Sunday - the lowest price since late August before Hurricane Harvey pushed up gas price, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 170 gas outlets in Chattanooga. The cost-tracking company surveys almost 1,000 gas stations in the St. Louis area.

In Georgia, the average price per gallon is $2.36, down 4.2 cents from last week. Belleville has the second-lowest at $2.05, but several stations in town were charging $2.25 or more. The average price of $2.46 per gallon is more or less unchanged from last week, 12 cents per gallon less than one month ago, but 24 cents higher than on this date previous year.

Retail prices remain about 5-10 cents higher than where they should be.

GasBuddy, which posts prices in each metropolitan area in real time, as well as prices in each state and the nation, takes a snapshot of each metro's prices on Sundays and releases them to the media on Mondays.

While not quite back to pre-Hurricane Harvey levels, gas prices continue to work their way down locally and around the country. The national average has been below $3 per gallon for close to three years in part because of lower crude oil prices, which are still about half what they were in 2014. "While recent actions from OPEC may cause oil prices to hold above the key $50 per barrel level, there is no threat of a quick return to the $3 per gallon days". The highest was about $2.63 per gallon in the Jackson area.

In the Great Lakes region, the most volatile market in the country, numerous states there have the most expensive gas in the country. The low during those years was $1.58 a gallon on January 2, 2009.

Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, believes the national average might continue to decline for the next few weeks. The U.S. Labor Department reported a median weekly wage of $859 during the third quarter, 3.9 percent higher than past year.
