Drivers across the United States paid the lowest September gas prices since 2010. The national average was $3.39 per gallon, which was about 13 cents less than last year and 44 cents cheaper than 2012.
Throughout September, the average price in Tennessee was $3.17, which was 56 cents less than last year.
AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said gas prices typically slide in September as the busy driving season ends and because many stations begin selling less costly winter-blend gasoline.
Jenkins said gas prices could fall another 20 cents per gallon by Thanksgiving.
It is possible gas prices main remain relatively flat over the next week or two due to heavy refinery maintenance. Refineries should complete most of this seasonal maintenance by the middle of October.
Nearly two dozen colleges across Tennessee partnered with the Secretary of State's office to participate in a month-long voter registration drive during September. The campaign in honor of National Voter Registration Month resulted in more than 1,000 Tennesseans becoming registered to vote.
Twenty-three colleges opened voter registration booths on their campuses at different times throughout the month. Students, faculty members and administrators all participated in the effort.
The deadline to register to vote in the November 4th election is next Monday, October 6th. Early voting begins October 15th.

Gov. Haslam is calling on all state agencies to plan for up to 7 percent spending cuts in the upcoming budget year.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports the move comes following a spending year in which revenues fell more than $300 million short of projections, leading the governor to cancel planned raises for state workers and teachers.
The actual amount of any potential cuts for the upcoming budget year will depend on whether revenues rebound and on the governor's spending priorities.
