According to GasBuddy historical data, gasoline prices on June 19 in Chattanooga have ranged widely over the last five years:
$2.09 per gallon in 2016, $2.51 per gallon in 2015, $3.39 per gallon in 2014, $3.31 per gallon in 2013 and $3.09 per gallon in 2012.

Areas near Chattanooga and their current gas price climate:
Knoxville- $2.02, down 3.4 cents per gallon from last week's $2.05.
State of Tennessee- $2.02, down 3.9 cents per gallon from last week's $2.06.
Huntsville- $2.04, down 4.6 cents per gallon from last week's $2.08.

"Another week, another nearly country-wide decline in average gasoline prices as crude oil prices struggle near the lowest levels of the year," said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy. "Motorists shouldn't expect too much more of the nice price declines we've seen in the last couple of weeks as hurricane season comes in to view, but we could see another week with a majority of states seeing prices move lower again, thanks to gasoline inventories that remain quite healthy, along with refiners that continue to push out product at rates that have been higher than demand, leading to crude oil prices that have struggled mightily to gain a footing. It looks like even OPEC's best move to thwart supply increases hasn't done much thanks to U.S. oil production which has charged back like a bull."
