AAA says Gas Prices have Stabilized

 

AAATampa, FL – Prices at the pump are moving lower, but face upward pressure due to increased oil prices. Crude oil reached 11-month highs last week and that could lead to higher gasoline prices.

“Rising oil prices typically lead to increased gas prices, but that has not happened yet,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Fortunately, last week’s shift in oil prices was not dramatic and wholesale prices are lower than a week ago, so it’s possible pump prices could get cheaper.”

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – These five topics cover distinct financial-management issues and caregiving plans. Ideally, you will have these conversations with your loved one and that person’s financial advisor in the mild decline stage of Alzheimer’s, or even before the diagnosis.

If the disease has progressed beyond this period, you—or the designated power of attorney—may need to have these discussions solely with the advisor. It is important for you and the advisor to understand the source and destination of your loved one’s finances so you can help when the individual may no longer be able to communicate his or her wishes.

Heart Disease Research Should be a Key Priority, Says American Heart Association

 

Senate Labor HHS Bill Funding Does Not Measure Up to Disease

American Heart AssociationWashington, D.C. – The American Heart Association said today that the Senate FY 2017 funding bill for Labor, HHS and Education is a win for the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH), but unfortunately, does not make heart disease research a priority. The bill includes a welcome six percent bump to the NIH budget: $2 billion over current funding.

However, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) received just a 4.1 percent increase. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke was boosted by 6.3 percent – the amount the association requested – and an additional $100 million was invested in the BRAIN Initiative.
