Gas prices fluctuate in Middle Tennessee

Source: WSMV

SYLVAN PARK, Tenn. (WSMV) - Gas prices in the country continue to be all over the map.

At some California gas stations, prices are hitting $6 per gallon whereas in Texas some places have dropped under $3.

In Middle Tennessee, prices continue to fluctuate.

Terry Hamm lives in West Nashville and said that he loves to support the local economy, but he can only go so far which is why he lives out in Cheatham County.

“It’s pretty simple to explain,” said Hamm. “I live in Sylvan, but gas prices are just cheaper out here.”

1. Yeah there's as much as a 20c/gal difference in gas prices from downtown to the suburbs

The stations near our house north of Nashville have been bouncing from just under $3/gal to just over for the past couple weeks

3. Montana is back up to $4 +/-.

IMO the Oil companies are gonna jerk us around until Nov. 4th, at least. Unless the Ukraine war suddenly ends. In which case they'll drop it 10 cents and then creep back up again. With the rest of the hurricane season still to go and the wholesale carnage in Florida disrupting sales there I expect we may see more fluctuation along with the usual manipulation.

If we get a Democratic House and Senate we could see them lower it more. But that's just a hope on my part.

If the past is anything to go by they'll screw with us as high and for as long as they can, and tell the MSM any damn lies they like.

6. We have refineries shutting down and switching products in California

By the end of next year we will be down 20% of gasoline production due to permanent refinery shutdowns and also they are taking advantage of a government subsidy to produce biofuel which costs much less to comply with our environmental regulations.

8. Not sure but usually it's summer vs winter, or ever lower emissions

We're actually trying to do something about the climate crisis, but sometimes it feels like a certain political party, that controls certain states, just wants to encourage as much fossil fuel burning as possible in their lifetime without restrictions. If they had their way we'd all be driving cars with 4-barrel carburetors (and thus, no catalytic converters either).

Like cigarette prices, higher gas prices do discourage people from excess driving. The problem is while we are getting from this point in time when we are still dependent on oil, to some alternative future when we are not, there are a lot of people trapped by an infrastructure that has encouraged maximum driving for nearly 100 years.
