Good morning, I’m Ron Brown…
Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant says he’ll keep up his oppositon to letting Syrian refugees settle here.
Bryant’s one of more than two dozen governors, mostly Republicans, who say they’ll fight the Obama administration’s efforts to resettle up to 10,000 Syrian refugees in the country this fiscal year.
The governors say they don’t trust the screening process for the Syrians in the wake of the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris.
Mississippi drivers who go over the river and through the woods are paying less for gas than almost anyone else in the nation.
The average price for gasoline’s the lowest in years.
Right now it’s just under $2 a gallon, almost 80 cents a gallon cheaper than what it cost to fill up last year.
That’s the lowest it’s been for Thanksgiving since 2004.
While it may be cheaper to drive the highways this year, the state highway patrol also wants to keep it safer.
The highway patrol enforcement period’s underway. You can expect to see more state troopers out until Sunday at midnight.
Now you’re up to date in B100 County. I’m Ron Brown.
