Gas Prices
Wednesday September 13, 2017

Gas prices have begun to plateau for the first time in more than 15 days despite Hurricane/Tropical Storm Irma making landfall in the southeast. Holding steady for five days at $2.67, the national gas price average is just three cents more expensive compared to last week. Tennessee's average increased to $2.59 - 4 cents higher than this time last week.
AAA spokesperson Stephanie Milani said Tennessee drivers should see gas prices begin to plateau soon. However, wholesale prices were volatile last week reacting to the predictions of Hurricane Irma, so drivers may not see prices fall as quickly as they rose.
Tennessee gas prices averaged $2.59 on Monday, an increase of 4 cents compared to last week.

 


Tenn. utility workers headed to Florida, Georgia following Hurricane Irma
WVLT Wednesday September 13, 2017

Volunteer lineworkers from 11 electric cooperatives are headed to help in restoration efforts following Hurricane Irma. Over 90 lineworkers have volunteered their time and skills to those in need in Georgia and Florida. Plans were in progress to send crews last week, but co-ops were reluctant to leave until Irma had passed through Tennessee. Now that the storm has gone through, some crews have already left, and others are making final preparations to leave for hard-hit Florida and Georgia. Tennessee isn't the only one sending volunteers, however. 5,000 lineworkers from 25 other states are also heading down the the hurricane ravaged areas.
