Gas Prices Point Lower, For Now

Tennessee gas prices increased 2 cents last week, before declining a penny during the weekend. The state average of $2.32 is 11 cents less than a month ago, yet motorists are paying 25 cents per gallon more than this time last year.

Clarksville, TN – I recently posed the question on my Facebook page about how my fellow riders handle tailgaters. As expected, the responses ran the gamut of opinions.
I can’t say that I have had many instances of tailgaters running up on me, but occasionally, I’ll encounter someone who appears out of nowhere and it scares the living HELL out of me. Not being as experienced as some of you, I still get a little “jittery” when someone’s too close to me.
In my opinion, there’s not a lot of options to dealing with someone who wants to get a real close look at your license plate. If you’re on the interstate, and you’re in the passing lane, you can only wait until you can move to the cruising lane and let the idiot get past you.
Clarksville, TN – If you were to ask any baseball or softball coach, including Austin Peay State University’s head baseball coach Travis Janssen or head softball coach Rodney DeLong, they would both tell you just how much pitching matters to a successful and winning team.
And while it is still very early-on in their respective season’s, both seem to have pitching staffs put together that can answer the challenges facing them and give their respective teams a chance to win ball games.
