Gas Prices
Tuesday January 10, 2017

Motorists saw little change at the gas pump last week. Compared to a week ago, the average price rose one cent in Tennessee.

The Tennessee average price of $2.14 held stable over the last three days after rising 6 cents in nine days.

AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said frozen gas prices are a good sign that we could soon see some relief at the pump. He said now that the holidays are over and cold weather is moving across much of the country, gasoline demand should drop, prices could too.

The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.36. Tennessee's average of $2.14 is ten cents higher than one month ago, and 40 cents higher than a year ago.

 


Lawmakers Convene
AP Tuesday January 10, 2017

State lawmakers convene the 110th Tennessee General Assembly on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 with new leadership in the Senate and a House speaker eying a gubernatorial bid.

Both chambers featuring heavy Republican majorities are scheduled to begin their organizational sessions at noon Central.

Longtime Sen. Randy McNally of Oak Ridge is the Republican nominee to succeed Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey of Blountville. Rep. Beth Harwell of Nashville is the GOP choice to stay in charge of the House, though her 40-30 nomination vote was closer than she hoped.

Harwell is among several prominent Republicans pondering a bid to succeed term-limited Gov. Bill Haslam in 2018, and political considerations might complicate a session in which the governor is expected to ask lawmakers to approve the state's first gasoline tax hike since 1989.

29 students are safe after an Alcoa school bus was destroyed by fire Monday morning.

Bus number 3 with Alcoa City Schools was close to ending its route at the intersection of Duncan Station Road and Upton Street on Monday morning at 7:10 a.m. when the driver noticed smoke on the bus.

According to the Superintendent of Alcoa City Schools, after noticing the smoke the driver pulled over and helped the 29 students on the bus escape from danger before the bus erupted into flames.

No injuries were reported.

The bus contracted by Rocky Top Bus Services was a total loss.
Officials are still trying to determine the cause of the fire, but believe it may be from the engine or the back brakes.
