AAA reports Cheap Crude Oil Paves Way for Significant Savings at the Pump

 

AAAWashington, D.C. – AAA says when filling-up at the pump this fall, the majority of U.S. motorists will find savings of potentially more than 25-cents/gallon compared to this summer.

The national gas price average, which is already 15-cents cheaper than just five weeks ago, is poised to continue pushing less expensive due to several factors, including less expensive crude oil prices, the drop-off in gasoline demand after Labor Day and the move to winter-blend gasoline.

AAA Forecasts National Gas Price Average to Land at $2.40 or Lower This Fall. (AAA)

Dodging the Roadkill: The Sturgis Chronicles – Part 6

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – For those of you who have been to the Sturgis Rally, you know that the presence of law enforcement stands out like no other.  There’s good reason for that, and I for one, am glad that security is tight.  Not only in downtown Sturgis, but along all of the highways, there were troopers and police.

As we were approaching Rapid City, we started to see a heavy presence of South Dakota State Troopers.  The speed limit is 80mph along the Interstate, and although we weren’t traveling at that speed, apparently others felt the need to push that limit.
