Memorial Day Gas Prices

Although not everyone will be hitting the road this weekend, those who do may want to fill up their tanks before they leave Cookeville. The Tennessee gas prices website says that Cookeville has some of the cheapest fuel prices in the state right now. According to reports filed by members on that site, the cheapest gas in Cookeville can be found at the Murphy USA station near the Walmart on South Jefferson Avenue. It was selling for 2.09 a gallon Thursday night. Other low cost gasoline could be found at the Raceway on Willow Avenue and at the Phillips 66 station on East Tenth Street. The website says gasoline prices appear to be higher in west Tennessee than they are locally, and the auto club AAA says that while it will probably continue to go up over the weekend, the price of gasoline is still far below what it was at this time last year.
