Nationwide gas price averages are as much as 12-cents to a nickel cheaper a gallon this week in more than two-thirds of the country. As demand drops and the end of refinery maintenance season wraps-up, the national gas price average is $2.70.

Prices could plunge even lower, especially if we see a surge in gasoline production after refiners fully restart units from the fall maintenance season. Also driving down pump prices is the fact that crude oil is selling under $65 a barrel which is rare this time of year.  

Locally in Giles County prices are averaging $2.37 a gallon for regular unleaded.
