Gas Prices Jump More than 25 Cents over the Course of Hours in Parts of Nashville

The price for a gallon of gas jumped over 25 cents in just a matter of hours between morning and afternoon in the Bellevue section of Nashville.

Several gas stations’ posted prices went from $4.39 per gallon of regular fuel to $4.65 in just 6 hours.

In some parts of Nashville, gas prices have risen to $4.89 per gallon.

A chart on the gas price tracking website Gas Buddy shows that gas prices per gallon of regular jumped 20 cents around Metro Nashville during the course of June 7.

The same chart shows that the average price per gallon nationwide is $4.93 and is $4.62 throughout the state of Tennessee. It additionally shows that Tennessee saw a similar one-day increase in fuel prices to the one that Metro Nashville did.

A year ago, gas prices were sitting at just under $2.80 a gallon for the Tennessee average.

According to the Gas Misery Index, as of June 3, Tennesseans are paying an additional $1,002 per year on gas and Americans nationwide are spending an additional $904 a year.

Outgoing U.S. Representative Jim Cooper (D-TN-5), who currently represents Nashville in the U.S. House, appears to be silent on the issue of rising gas prices.

His congressional website does not appear to contain any proposed solutions to the wallet crunch that his constituents are facing due to the ever-rising fuel prices.

The Tennessee Star previously reported that U.S. Representative Chuck Fleischmann (R-TN-03) blasted the Biden administration’s “war on American energy.”

The Biden administration has frequently blamed Russia’s aggression in Ukraine for the rising gas prices, but it has failed to address the failures of its own domestic policy.

Fleischmann said in a tweet last week, “High gas prices are a policy choice of this Administration and one-party Congress. It’s time to end the war on American energy.”

“Another day, another new record for gas prices. If we continue on the same path, gas could hit $5 or $6+ a gallon. We can lower fuel costs. Increase domestic drilling, allow leases in Alaska and the Gulf, restart Keystone XL, and remove regulations,” he said in another.

    All part of the Great Reset.

    Biden during the debates with Trump – Joe Biden: “I would transition from the oil industry”
    Great graph and presentation done by Cruz showing Biden’s attack on the oil industry along with rising prices.
    Zerohedge has a good article on the refinery bottleneck –
    The worsening refining bottleneck, especially in the U.S., was explained by Mike Wirth, the CEO of oil giant Chevron, who recently told Bloomberg TV that there’s not enough refining capacity to meet the demand for gasoline and diesel because no new refinery will ever be built in the U.S. again.

    Wirth explains his reason: “You’re looking at committing capital ten years out, that will need decades to offer a return for shareholders, in a policy environment where governments around the world are saying, ‘We don’t want these products to be used in the future.'”

    The crisis in refined products is because of the green energy transition forcing oil/gas companies, like Chevron and other majors, to not just shutter refineries but not invest and expand refinery capacity. This colossal failure has resulted in the national average for regular fuel approaching $5 a gallon by the end of this week.
