Tampa, FL – The price of gasoline inched up an average of about a cent during the past week, but prices leveled off during the weekend. The national average price of $2.29 is the cheapest for this day since 2004.
“Gas prices fluctuated during the past couple of weeks, because gasoline demand is unusually high at a time when refineries are entering their maintenance season,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Fortunately, the slight upward pressure on prices is typically short-lived and gasoline should get cheaper through the end of the year.”
Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Department of Health is working with the United States Department of Agriculture to help prevent rabies by distributing oral rabies vaccine for wild raccoons along Tennessee’s borders with Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.

Tampa, FL – Self-parking technology is the way of the future; however, many motorists find it difficult to surrender control of their vehicle to a computer. According to a new AAA survey, nearly 80 percent of American drivers are confident in their parallel parking abilities and only one-in-four would trust this technology to park their vehicle.
Regardless of this, AAA testing found drivers who used their park assist systems during testing experienced 81 percent fewer curb strikes than drivers parking without assistance.
Tampa, FL – According to the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) the price of used electric vehicles (EVs) are projected to decrease by 30 percent this year.
One of the factors contributing to declining prices in the EV market is the substantial number of used EV’s coming off lease. NADA Electric Vehicle Retention Report Card suggests trade-in values of two year old EVs have dropped in recent months.
This is exciting news for motorists who have a desire to purchase an EV without the high sticker price of a new one.
