AAA reports Cheapest Holiday Gas Prices in Six Years

 

AAATampa, FL – Motorists traveling for the year-end holidays saw the cheapest Christmas day gasoline since 2008. The average price for a gallon of regular unleaded was $2.43 in Florida, $2.32 in Georgia, and $2.18 in Tennessee. These prices broke the previous lows set in 2009 of $2.63 in Florida, $2.44 in Georgia, and 2.45 in Tennessee.

“Low gas prices are helping consumers save more than $21.00 for a tank of gasoline compared to the highs earlier this year ($3.70), and that has a positive effect on holiday shopping and travel,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “The new year will bring new expectations for even cheaper gasoline. Prices could drop another 3-6 cents by New Year’s Day.” «Read the rest of this article»

Christmas Bells

 

Written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Christmas PresentsI heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Christmas PresentsClarksville, TN – When I returned home late in the afternoon, I collapsed on the couch and announced that I was exhausted from shopping for Christmas.

“Your problem is that you didn’t wait until Christmas Eve to shop,” my dear husband responded.

His comment boggled my imagination. I could just see what kind of Christmas we’d have if I waited until Christmas Eve to begin.

AAA reports Gas Prices near $2.00 a gallon in Tennessee

 

AAATampa, FL – Motorists are saving an average of $10.00 for a tank of gas compared to this time last year. Gasoline prices crept closer to $2.00 a gallon last week and nothing is slowing them down. Domestic oil supply is at a three decade high and forecast to keep growing. Meanwhile, the price of oil fell to its lowest level in five years.

“Oil prices are plunging because there is so much oil in the market,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “It’s unclear exactly how long this will continue, but gas prices will keep falling as long as oil prices do. Right now, oil prices are forecast to fall through the first half of next year, which further increases the likelihood of $2.00 gasoline.” «Read the rest of this article»
