Marsha Blackburn Report: Freedoms We Cherish

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Freedom is the one guiding principle that can never steer a lawmaker wrong. At Tennessee Tuesday last week, Senator Lamar Alexander and I discussed what freedom means to us and asked Tennesseans visiting D.C. to give their take. Watch below for a special Independence Day video!

My colleagues and I had a deeply “philosophical” debate about our favorite July 4th treats. I shared with them what all Tennesseans know — or rather, should know: Tennessee has the best barbecue, A hot dog is a sandwich and Abigail Adams is our favorite Founding Mother.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

AAA says Going Against Usual Trends, Demand Drives Gas Prices Down Even Lower

 

AAATampa, FL – For the week ending June 14th, 2019, U.S. gasoline demand hit its highest level at 9.93 million b/d. It is the highest level ever recorded since the Energy Information Administration (EIA) began publishing data in 1991.

Counterintuitively, as motorists drive demand to new heights, pump prices pushed even cheaper across the country on the week. This is due to the recent trend in cheaper crude pricing and because crude comprises roughly 60% of the costs people pay at the pump, drivers are seeing summer savings.

Gas Prices continue to fall at the Pump despite rising demand. (AAA)
