For the first time in the 15-month history of the AAA Auto Club South Tennessee Fuel Gauge Report, the average price of self-serve regular unleaded gas has dropped below $1. In West and Central Tennessee, AAA reports the average price is 98.5 cents per gallon, down 1.8 cents from the February average of $1 per gallon. The March average is 21.9 cents less than it was one year ago. A six-month plunge has brought gas prices down nearly 21 cents to the lowest national level in four years, according to AAA. Officials said the drop is due to falling crude prices, high inventories and a downturn in domestic demand for gas and heating oil.
