TN Gas Prices Drop Below $3/GallonImportant mainly because of the people in the conversation.
Alan Spector Wednesday October 15, 2014

It will soon be increasingly common for motorists to find gasoline cheaper than three dollars a gallon. That word from Triple-A, which says that gas prices declined dramatically over the past week, thanks to low demand and high domestic oil supplies. The current nationwide average for a gallon of regular is three-18, down nine cents from a week ago. The statewide average in Tennessee is under three dollars a gallon at two-97, down 10 cents from a week ago. The average price in Crossville is two-96 a gallon, down by six cents.


Residents appear to be against abutment project
Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday October 15, 2014

An abutment project will be abandoned after Council finds residents are not supportive of the project that would provide street improvements and basic City utility services to areas of Narcissus Street, Westheria Drive and Iris Circle. The City recently conducted a survey of the area by certified mail. Of the 56 property owners notified, 30 percent responded against, 7 percent in favor and 54 percent did not respond. In the project, property owners in those areas would be apportioned 75 percent of the costs to be spread out over a 10 year period. Council was seeking at least a 51 percent approval before moving forward. During a public hearing last evening on the project, two residents of the area stated that since they have been in the City limits for 30 plus years and have paid their taxes, they feel they have already paid. Councilman Pete Souza felt the survey was inconclusive due to the high percentage residents whom did not respond either way. However, Souza also questioned why the area had been without basic City services for so long and it was time to bring all of the City up to the basic level of service.
