MURFREESBORO, Tenn (WMOT) -- In what may be a sign that the latest run up in gasoline prices is at an end, the average cost for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline fell overnight in Tennessee by one cent.
According to the AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report, the average price for a gallon of gasoline stood at $3.65 Tuesday morning. That’s an increase of eight cents in the past week and 26 cents in the past month.
The current run up in prices began in early July when the average cost of a gallon of gas bottomed out at $3.13.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (ANFINSON) -- I’ve been riding a motorcycle for the better part of 15 years. With high prices at the pump, it’s a cheap way to get around, and it’s fun. But the large number of motorcyclists killed this year have given me pause.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WMOT) — Tennessee's Safety Department is creating a new unit to investigate identity theft crimes.
Deputy Commissioner of Safety and Homeland Security Larry Godwin says that the 14-member unit will be made up of personnel from the Tennessee Highway Patrol, the state Office of Homeland Security and the Driver Services division.
Godwin says identity theft and fraud crimes are a growing problem in Tennessee, but many local law enforcement agencies don't have enough resources or manpower to investigate these crimes.
