AAATampa, FL – On the week, the national gas price average is two cents cheaper at $2.90. Today’s national average is only one cent more expensive than a month ago, but 60 cents more expensive than a year ago.

Nationwide, 44 states have less expensive or steady gas price averages compared to last Monday.

However, the cheaper trend may be reversing. Gasoline demand spiked in the latest Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) report, in fact setting a new all-time record at 9.88 million b/d for the week ending June 8th.

Dodging the Roadkill: Random Thoughts

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN I just wanted to share a few thoughts about what’s been going on with me lately.  There’s no particular theme to this post, just a few thoughts from the last several days.

First, I rode to Fort Smith, Arkansas for their Steel Horse Rally.  This is the fourth year for this event and it draws thousands of bikers to the area.

I met the organizers of this event and you could tell this is a real passion for them.  The event grows every year and raises money for local charities in the Ft. Smith area.  It focuses on those who serve and HAVE served.  They get a lot of support from the area, especially local law enforcement.

I can’t wait to get there. 

Last year, the Steel Horse Rally drew more than 75,000 people and impacted the local economy to the tune of 13 million dollars.

Dodging the Roadkill: Bald Knob Cross

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – It’s only fitting that on the day that millions of Christians celebrate their faith and the sacrifice that was made for them for all eternity, I share the story of Bald Knob Cross.  You can read the history at the link I’ve provided. 

I was made aware of this magnificent structure from one of my followers of this blog.  Just another reason I LOVE the people I meet on this bike.  

While I have ridden the Ozarks, in both Missouri and Arkansas, I’ve never been to Alto Pass Illinois, or this magnificent structure.  Here’s the video.  

The Christian Motorcycle Association sponsors their annual “Blessing of the Bikes” here each year, drawing thousands of bikers from all over the country.  This years event is April 29th.
