NASHVILLE, Tenn.--Gas prices in Nashville have fallen 1.8 cents per gallon the past week, but with the price of a barrel of oil rising due to the Middle East crisis, residents can expect to pay more at the pump.
Gas Buddy reports though prices have stayed relatively flat in Nashville, the conflict in Iraq will likely drive crude oil and retail gas prices up. The national average could jump between 3-6 cents per gallon this week.
