Gas up more than a penny last week

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Gas prices were up again in and around Knoxville, but not nearly as much as elsewhere in the nation.

According to, the average price of a gallon of gas in the Knoxville area increased by 1.2 cents over the past week. The site now puts the cost of a gallon of gas at $3.35/gallon.

That's more than two cents less than the average increase across the country, which rose 3.4 cents, and more than twenty cents less than the average price of $3.56/gallon.

The increase is more dramatic when looking over the course of the past year. At this time in 2010, gas cost more than 72 cents less and just last month gas was over 12 cents cheaper in Knoxville. It's jumped over 20 cents over the course of the month nationwide.
