Blue, the wonder dog, reporting here! Attention Sevier County residents! For the first time in a long time, gas is available for the reasonable price of under $2.00 per gallon! This is incredibly important for Sevier County because the vast majority of our 12-14 million annual vacationing guests drive rather than fly to visit the unique tourist destination we have nestled in our mountains.
Less expensive gas increases the chance that more visitors will arrive this year!
Furthermore, decreased gas prices provide people with the opportunity to keep more of their money kept safely in their pockets! This could also be seen as a raise in wages! Small changes in gas prices have the ability to make almost everything decrease in price to some degree. For example, any good that is transported via truck could potentially deflate in price if gas prices are declining. In certain situations, some are spending a large proportion of their earnings on basic needs such as gas. A break in gas prices can cause a ripple effect in the community for the better. In addition, many businesses in the area had a phenomenal year in 2019. Despite the dreary weather lately, gas prices decreasing could be an indicator that 2020 will be even better for most businesses!
We wanted to update this post to let you know that gas has gone down even more since this was orginally published! Use this opportunity to fill up your tank and head on out to the National Park for some fresh air and fun!!!
