Protests around the state Capitol in Nashville have some Republicans calling for a crackdown on demonstrators and for resurrecting more stringent security requirements for entering the legislative office complex.
Democrats are pushing back against those calls, arguing that access to legislators shouldn't be curtailed only because many of the protesters oppose the policies of President Donald Trump on issues including immigration, race, abortion and LGBT rights.
The latest clamor for enhanced security follows allegations that protesters disrupted state business and vandalized a legislative aide's flower vase.
But those claims are under dispute because of questions about whether the interrupted press conference should be considered official legislative business. And as the Nashville Scene first reported, the vase was inadvertently knocked over, most likely by a TV cameraman covering the protesters.
Motorists saw little movement in pump prices this past week. But gasoline could soon be on the rise as spring approaches due to the refinery maintenance, an increase in driving and the switch to summer-blend fuels. Currently the national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $2.28, up four-tenths of a cent from last week, down five cents from a month ago and 56 cents higher than last year.
Tennessee gas prices rose slightly this past week. The average price of regular is $2.06, which is one cent higher than a week ago, 7 cents lower than a month ago and 55 cents higher than a year ago.
