AAA says Georgia’s average Gas Price drops below $2

 

Pump prices expected to fall again this week

AAATampa, FL – The average price for gasoline in Georgia fell below $2.00 a gallon last week for the first time since May 2009. Georgia became the 29th state to slip below the $2.00 threshold on Friday.  Florida’s average price was 8 cents above $2.00 on Sunday, but should drop below $2.00 within the next month.

“The gas price plunge is directly connected to declining global crude oil prices,” said Mark Jenkins, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Like pump prices, crude oil prices have posted multi-year lows due to global supply outpacing demand, which has kept downward pressure on the price of crude and ultimately meant hefty discounts in retail gasoline for U.S. drivers. The price of oil dipped again last week, meaning motorists could see even more discounts at the pump in the coming days.” «Read the rest of this article»

AAA reports Oil falls below $50 a Barrel, Lowest price in 5 years

 

AAATampa, FL – Gas prices fell another 7 cents last week as the price of crude oil continues to drop. WTI fell below $50.00 a barrel on the NYMEX, settling at $48.36 on Friday, the lowest settlement since April 2009.

“The price of crude is continuing its downward slide due to excess supply and weak demand,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Global oil prices are expected to remain relatively low for the first half of 2015, which could put additional pressure on high-cost production countries like the United States. Rebel forces continue to disrupt supply from OPEC member country Libya, yet the level of global oversupply appears capable of easing concerns that might otherwise send prices higher due to production concerns.” «Read the rest of this article»

You should never Judge a Person by Appearances Only

 

facesClarksville, TN – Our culture has become fixated on what a person appears to be. Hundreds of books have been written on the subject; numerous television shows now describe this; scores of people now make their living by telling people what to wear. We believe that youth is the crowning age of life and everyone must work daily to present a youthful, attractive appearance.

Both women and men are advised on how to succeed in their professions by wearing certain types of clothing, using the latest age-defying make-up, choosing the right hair style, buying that certain briefcase that shows you to be executive material, and having every blemish—from body language to teeth—corrected to fit the ideal presentation. «Read the rest of this article»

AAA announces Gas Price drop surpasses 100 Consecutive Days

U.S. gasoline prices were $1.11 more expensive just one year ago. At the beginning of 2014, the national average for regular unleaded was $3.32. Prices rose in the spring due to refinery maintenance and the switch to “summer-blend gasoline,” peaking at $3.70 on April 18th. «Read the rest of this article»
