According to Gasbuddy.com regular unleaded was selling at a number of stations around town Friday morning at $2.96.

A few stations in Nashville and Lebanon are selling regular for $2.99. A gallon of gas is selling today for $3.15 in Franklin, $3.13 in Manchester, $3.09 in Dickson and $3.08 in Clarksville.
