Black Friday Advice from the BBB
WTVF Wednesday November 15, 2017

Black Friday is supposed to be a day when consumers are able to find merchandise at rock bottom prices. Although many consumers will find good deals on Black Friday, it is also a day filled with fine print and restrictions.
Those restrictions can cost consumers time and money.
For those looking to find the best door-busting deals on Black Friday, the Better Business Bureau has compiled a list of tips for consumers:
Learn about advertising tricks and gimmicks. The new BBB #AdTruth campaign highlights bad ads and helps you learn to identify the most common schemes and cons.
Do your research. Read product reviews, look at the sales flyers and ads, compare prices, look for early promotions and "flash sales."
Read the fine print. Some stores only honor sale ads during a certain time frame, or on certain days.
Know the advertiser. Some of the best deals are only available online, but be careful. It's easy for a fake site to mimic a famous retailer's website, so make sure you are shopping with a legitimate site.
Sign-up for email alerts.
Ask for gift receipts and save warranty information.

So far in 2017, 898 people have lost their lives on Tennessee roads. 15 have died in crashes on roads in Warren County.
The THP urges you to be safe, buckle your seat belt, don't speed, don't drive intoxicated and don't drive distracted.

 


Gas Prices
Tuesday November 14, 2017

Gas prices plateaued over the weekend after an unseasonable jump at the pump last week. Tennessee gas prices rose an average of 8 cents in 10 days.
The state average's steady climb came to a crawl over the weekend. Tennessee's gas prices averaged $2.34 on Sunday, just fractions of a penny less than the day before. The state average is 6 cents more than a week ago and 31 cents more than last year.
AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said the usual autumn gas price plunge was interrupted by rising oil prices. He said we should expect gas prices to linger at their current levels this week.
The national average price of regular unleaded is $2.56.
