KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Gas prices fell across Tennessee and the country last week, according to new numbers from AAA. The agency credited the decline to increases in supply and production.

Positive signs from Iran are also helping ease fears of a break in supply, lowering prices.

Some analysts are predicting gas prices could fall even further, thanks to a building up in supply, while others are expressing concerns over an increased demand in heating oil, said AAA.
