Spring is the best time to get the highest price for your used vehicle
Knoxville, TN – Depreciation is the single most expensive cost of owning a vehicle. Your vehicle depreciates the minute you drive it off the lot, and steadily decreases in value each year.
As a quick rule of thumb, a car will lose between 15 and 20 percent of its value each year. After three years of a car’s life, depending on the vehicle, it may have depreciated by as much as half of its original value.
Brenham, TX – Blue Bell Ice Cream of Brenham, Texas, is voluntarily recalling all of its products currently on the market made at all of its facilities including ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet and frozen snacks because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
Tampa, FL – The most expensive oil of 2015 triggered increases at the gas pump, and prices could continue to climb this week. The national average price of regular unleaded gasoline is $2.45 per gallon, up 6 cents since last Sunday. Prices also rose 3 cents in Florida and 9 cents in both Georgia and Tennessee
“The average price at the pump typically reflects a bit of seasonality this time of year,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “It is not uncommon for prices to inch higher leading up to the summer driving season and the transition to more expensive summer-blend fuel. However, record high domestic oil production is likely to deliver the cheapest summer gas prices in a decade.”

Gas prices remain volatile but could soon be on the decline
Tampa, FL – Gas prices continue to fluctuate as refineries begin to move out of the spring maintenance season and prepare for the summer driving season.
The national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $2.39, down a fraction of a cent from last week. Motorists continue to enjoy significant year-over-year savings, paying $1.24 per gallon less than last year.
Tampa, FL – During the first 100 days of 2015 the national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline was $2.27, down $1.13 from 2014. The last time consumers saw the average drop this drastically year-over-year was in 2009, when the average fell $1.22.
“This is positive news for the average motorist who is saving $15.00-$30.00 every time they fill up their tank”, said Josh Carrasco, spokesperson, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Cheap crude oil has caused gas prices to slide and is saving the American economy over $400 million a day.”
Tampa, FL – Lower gas prices may be on the way for U.S. consumers by this summer if refinery maintenance ends smoothly and crude oil remains relatively cheap. It is even possible that gas prices will return to near $2.00 per gallon in some areas, as long as there are no unexpected problems in the meantime. AAA does not expect the national average to rise above $3.00 per gallon this year.
“There is a real hope that gas prices could drop significantly in time for the busy summer driving season,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “The overall outlook looks good for drivers, and with any luck we will avoid the types of problems that often lead to higher gas prices at this time of year.” «Read the rest of this article»
