TDOT/THP Gearing Up for Great American Eclipse
Peg Broadcasting News/TSEA Tuesday August 15, 2017

The Tennessee Highway Patrol and the Tennessee Department of Transportation are gearing up for the Great American Eclipse on Monday, August 21. This will be the first coast-to coast eclipse in 98 years and it is estimated that between 300,000 to over a million tourists could come to Middle Tennessee to view the celestial event. Lasting more than an hour, the sun will slowly be covered by the moon, engulfing the area in total darkness. Then, the process reverses and the region slowly returns to light. With Middle Tennessee offering a unique front-row experience to this phenomenon, the Tennessee Department of Transportation and Tennessee Highway Patrol are planning extensively for this event. Jennifer Flynn, Region 2 Community Relations Officer with TDOT says preparing for the eclipse is similar to other large events held in the state. TDOT is planning ahead like it would for any event where there is a large influx of traffic, such as Bonnaroo or the CMA in Nashville. TDOT has been working closely with the Tennessee Highway Patrol to keep traffic moving on the interstates and state routes on the day of the eclipse. TDOT help trucks will assist the THP officers with traffic control. TDOT will also work with local law enforcement. Lt. John Harmon with the Tennessee Highway Patrol says all available troopers will be working the day of the eclipse to respond to crashes and construction backups.

 


Gas Prices
Peg Broadcasting News Tuesday August 15, 2017

Gasoline prices are holding steady, declining only fractions of a penny over the weekend. Tennessee gas prices averaged $2.15 on Sunday. The state average is one cent more than last week, and 24 cents more than last year. Gasbuddy.com reported several places in Crossville selling fuel for $2.07 on Monday.

AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said pump prices are moving slightly lower as refineries keep the market well-supplied with gasoline. He said gasoline supplies are outpacing demand as we enter the final weeks of the summer travel season. This should prevent any major gains in gas prices, unless oil prices rise in response to unexpected disruptions in supply due to international conflict, refinery issues or a hurricane.

The national average for the price of regular unleaded is $2.35, ten cents more than a month ago.
