TripAdvisor has served up a list of the top-rated states and restaurants for barbecue and declared Tennessee as No. 1 in the U.S.
“Being named the No. 1 state for barbecue, by the No. 1 most popular travel site in the world is a huge honor for Tennessee,” said Commissioner Kevin Triplett, Tennessee Department of Tourist Development.
“We look forward to welcoming foodies from far and wide to our state to fill up on the best barbecue in the world.”
Gas prices are still creeping up in some parts of the Southeastern United States, but motorists are forecast to pay the lowest summer gas prices since 2009.
In comparison to this same date last year, motorists in Tennessee are saving 92 cents per gallon.
“Prices should begin to drop later this month as refiners around the nation complete their maintenance switch over to produce summer-fuel grades,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman for AAA-The Auto Club Group.
