CVS to Limit Opioid Prescriptions
WKRN Tuesday September 26, 2017

CVS is planning to limit opioid prescriptions in an effort to combat the overdose epidemic.
CVS says it will limit initial opioid prescriptions to a seven-day supply for new patients. Pharmacists will be asked to contact doctors when prescriptions appear to offer more medication than needed.
The drug store chain also says it will boost funding for addiction programs, counseling, and safe disposal of opioids. This makes CVS the first national retail chain to restrict how many pain pills doctors can give patients.

 


Gas Prices
Tuesday September 26, 2017

Gas prices are on a steep slide after reaching 3-year highs due to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Prices surged when Harvey struck refineries along the gulf coast, then remained elevated as demand spiked in the southeast following Hurricane Irma. Now supply and demand levels are returning to normal, and prices are on the decline.
AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said if it weren't for the recent hurricanes, gas prices would be about 25 cents lower. He said gas prices in the southeastern U.S. should drop another 5-10 cents this week.
The average price in Tennessee has declined for the last 14 consecutive days, for a total discount of 8 cents, since peaking at $2.60 on September 10th. Tennessee gas prices averaged $2.52 on Sunday. That's 5 cents less than a week ago and 35 cents more than a year ago.
The national average is $2.57.
