Alan Spector/AAA Monday November 10, 2014

A big reason for the decline is domestic oil production, which is the highest on record dating back to 1983. The average price is below $3 a gallon in 26 states, including Tennessee, which has the 2nd cheapest average price of regular at $2.70 a gallon. That's down four cents from the week before. The average in Crossville is $2.69 a gallon, also down four cents.

Make a "County Connection" the Saturday After Thanksgiving on "Family History Day"
The Secretary of State Monday November 10, 2014
The Thanksgiving weekend is a time when many of us spend time reconnecting with family members and sharing family stories. At the Tennessee State Library and Archives (TSLA), families can also explore stories of their relatives who lived many years ago. On Saturday, Nov. 29 Gordon Belt, TSLA’s director of public services, will host a genealogy workshop for beginners that will provide an overview of resources available at the library and how to navigate through various databases. The workshop is entitled “County Connections” and will focus on locating and using TSLA’s many county records. After the workshop, TSLA staff members will be on hand to help visitors with their research. The session will be held from 9:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 29 at the TSLA auditorium, and research assistance will be available until 4:30. TSLA is located at 403 Seventh Avenue North, directly west of the State Capitol building in downtown Nashville. While the workshop is free, reservations are required due to limited seating. To make a reservation, call (615) 741-2764 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that TSLA will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 27 and Friday, Nov. 28 for the Thanksgiving holiday, so it's important to make reservations before then. Although parking in front of TSLA's building is limited due to construction, there is plenty of additional parking behind the building.
