Texting and Driving Legislation
WSMV Wednesday February 1, 2017

State lawmakers may be considering legislation that would enable law enforcement officers to use a device that would show if a driver had been texting in the moments leading up to a crash. The device is called a textalyzer. An officer could plug the device in to a driver's cell phone to see if the person was texting.
Officials say the officer would have to make the determination that there is probable cause that the crash was a result of distracted driving. The Supreme Court says officers would also need a warrant to search a phone. But the bill could closely mirror the laws that make breathalyzers legal.
Last year the Tennessee Highway Patrol issued 13,549 citations for texting and driving.
Sen. Lee Harris is working on the legislation.

Gas Prices
Tuesday January 31, 2017

Increased U.S. crude oil production and lower gasoline demand has kept downward pressure on the national average price at the pump, which has fallen for 20 consecutive days. Today's national average price for regular unleaded gasoline is $2.22 per gallon, down eight cents from last week and a decline of 7 cents from a month ago.
AAA spokesman Josh Carrasco said falling gas prices are normal for this time of the year. He said we should continue to see gas prices trend downward to wrap up the month, but should expect an uptick in prices at the pump in February, due to refinery maintenance season.
The average price of a gallon of gas in Tennessee is $2.07, which is 3 cents cheaper than a week ago, 2 cents lower than a month ago, and 46 cents higher than a year ago.
