Donations needed to prevent a Winter Shortage
Nashville, TN – The American Red Cross has an urgent need for blood and platelet donations to prevent a shortage this winter.
Busy holiday schedules in November and December contributed to about 1,700 fewer blood drives held across the country compared to the two previous months, which has resulted in about 50,000 fewer donations and reduced the blood supply.
Washington, D.C. – Gas prices rang in the New Year by reaching the lowest average price ($1.997) for the holiday since 2009. Today’s average price of $1.99 per gallon is the cheapest average since March 25th, 2009, and the national average has moved lower for 50 of the past 59 days, largely due to an abundance of crude oil. Pump prices are discounted by fractions of a penny on the week, by five cents per gallon on the month, and are down by 22 cents on the year.
In 2015, consumers paid an annual average of $2.40 per gallon, which was the lowest annual average since 2009.
