Including the change in gas prices in Tennessee during the past week, prices yesterday were 25.3 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 15.0 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

Tennessee, TN, January 22- Average retail gasoline prices in Tennessee have risen 1.9 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.35/g yesterday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 3,821 gas outlets in Tennessee.

Crude oil prices, a major factor in the price at the pump, continue to flirt with four-year highs because of lower production from members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and expectations of economically-driven demand pressure.

"However, there is still lingering hope that USA oil production will ramp up sooner than later, which would boost inventories and push energy prices lower", Jenkins said. While market watchers search for indications that global crude growth is slowing, the U.S.is not inline with the trend. The total number of rigs now stands at 747.
