AAA reports Gas Demand Rises, Prices at Pump Climb

 

AAATampa, FL – Americans are filling up at the pump more and more. Since mid-May, gasoline demand has increased 18% to 7.9 million b/d, according to the latest Energy Information Administration (EIA) report.

The slow, but steady rise in demand has pushed the national pump price more expensive by 13% in the same time frame. Today’s national average is $2.10. That is seven cents more on the week, 24 cents more on the month, but 59 cents cheaper on the year.

Prices at the Gas Pump continue to climb with increased demand. (AAA)

Defund Police, Watch Crime Return

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “One feature of our current politics is how quickly bad events trigger a rush to bad policies. So it is that the response to the killing of George Floyd has sprinted past police reform to ‘defund the police,’” The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes. 

“By all means let’s debate other policies and accountability in using force. But a political drive to defund police risks a return to the high-crime era of the 1960s and 1970s that damaged so many American cities.”

President Donald Trump’s statement on Rioting, Looting

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Thank you very much. My fellow Americans: My first and highest duty as President is to defend our great country and the American people. I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation, and that is exactly what I will do.

He will not have died in vain. But we cannot allow the righteous cries and peaceful protesters to be drowned out by an angry mob.

Bambridge Accountants New YorkNew YorkFormer Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, plans to issue the biggest tax increase in years for small businesses report Bambridge Accountants New York.
