Harwell May Run for Governor
AP Tuesday March 21, 2017

A former Tennessee GOP leader says state House Speaker Beth Harwell told her she is running for governor, but the Nashville Republican says she will make her decision after the current legislative session.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that Susan Richardson Williams, a former Tennessee Republican Party chairwoman, posted on Facebook last week that Harwell called to let her know she's running for governor.

Harwell confirmed Monday that she has been making calls to prospective supporters but stressed that she won't make a decision about whether to mount a bid until after the Legislature adjourns for the year.

Sitting lawmakers are banned from raising money during the legislative session.
The Republican field to succeed term-limited Gov. Bill Haslam so far includes state Sen. Mark Green and businessman Randy Boyd.


Gas Prices
Tuesday March 21, 2017

Gas prices have declined 14 of the last 16 days. During that time, the national average price has declined 2 cents. Pump prices have drifted lower on increased inventories and declining oil prices.

AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said gas prices are falling now, but gulf coast refineries are moving into their peak maintenance season, causing them to reduce gasoline production at a time when demand is slowly rising. This seasonal trend could push gas prices 25-50 cents higher by June, unless oil prices do not recover as expected.

The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.29, a half-cent lower than last week.

Tennessee's average is $2.04, one cent lower than last week, two cents lower than a month ago and 22 cents higher than a year ago.
