Gas prices continue to drop as the nation deals with the coronavirus pandemic and Chattanooga is seeing a significant decrease at the pump.

As of today, the average gas price in Chattanooga is $1.47 per gallon. That’s over a dollar cheaper from the average this time last year. Today’s average price per gallon in Tennessee is $1.56 compared to the national average of $1.78. 

Some places in Tennessee are seeing even lower prices, like 99 cent price tag for a gallon of gas in scattered locations across the state.

Meanwhile, Tennessee Valley Authority says fuel costs have reached a record low and the overall system average fuel rate for May is about 23% lower than the three-year average May fuel cost. This is do in part to the coronavirus and mild weather.
