Edmonton Alberta, Canada – The Nashville Predators saw one slip away tonight against the Edmonton Oilers, 3-2.
Some questionable officiating late in the game put Nashville’s back against the wall against the number one power play in the league, and the Oilers took full advantage.
Craig Smith got the Predators off to a great start, scoring at 12:17 of the first period, scoring on the backhand from the slot as he picked up the loose puck for the score. Nashville took a 1-0 lead.
Tampa, FL – The national gas price average is $2.47, which is four cents cheaper than last week and 11 cents cheaper than the beginning of the year. Motorists are paying less to fill up especially as crude oil prices are less expensive.
“Gas prices are pushing cheaper for two reasons. Crude oil prices are $10.00 less a barrel than one month ago and U.S. gasoline stocks sit at an all-time record high,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.
Tampa, FL – AAA says that despite crude oil price fluctuation and growing geopolitical concerns with Iran in the last week, the national gas price average has held steady at $2.58 since the beginning of the year. Today’s national average is two cents more than last month and 34-cents more expensive than the beginning of 2019.
“A healthy and growing level of domestic gasoline stocks alongside decreasing demand are two factors helping to minimize gas price fluctuations,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.
Tampa, FL – AAA says the national gas price average held steady on the week at $2.58, but that could change depending on the movement of crude oil prices due to geopolitical concerns.
Following airstrikes in Baghdad last Friday, which killed Iran’s Major General Qassem Soleimani, crude oil prices increased, causing market speculation about what could happen to gas prices in the near-term.
Marsha Blackburn, John Kennedy Join Steve Scalise, 200+ Members in Supporting Louisiana’s Pro-Life Law
Washington, D.C. – Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and John Kennedy (R-La.), House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), and Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) led 207 Members of Congress in filing an amicus brief to stand up for Louisiana’s pro-life law before the U.S. Supreme Court that would require all abortion providers to have admitting privileges at local hospitals when emergencies arise.
“States reserve the right to protect mothers and their children with high standards for health care providers—and abortionists remain subject to such high standards. I hope the Supreme Court will issue a ruling that safeguards women’s health and that is consistent with the Constitution’s guarantee for states’ rights,” Senator Blackburn stated.
Tennessee sees 2 cent increase in Gas Prices
Tampa, FL – More than 100 million Americans are taking to the roadways to travel for the holidays, but that hasn’t had a large impact on gas prices. At the start of the work week, only about a dozen states are seeing more expensive gas prices with increases of less than a dime.
“AAA forecasts that 104 million Americans will travel by car – the most on record – for a year-end holiday,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.
Manhattan, NY – The Nashville Predators began a four game road trip with a big win over the New York Rangers tonight at Madison Square Garden, 5-2. The Predators were outshot by the relentless Rangers, 41-24, but were able to make their chances count in the victory.
Juuse Saros started in goal for the Predators tonight and blocked 39 shots. Nashville needs to refresh their browser on this season if they expect to make the playoffs, coming off of a embarrassing loss to the Dallas Stars on Saturday night.
Nashville, Tn — The Nashville Predators fell to the Dallas Stars tonight at Bridgestone Arena in an all too familiar fashion. Lack of scoring and goal tending. If this is any indication of what the upcoming Winter Classic will be like, then Nashville has a lot of work to do before the New Year’s day event.
Once again, the Predators outshot their opponent, only to fall short in scoring goals. Nashville fired 38 shots on goal to just 22 for the Stars. Pekka Rinne continues to struggle in net, giving up all four goals tonight.
Tampa, FL – AAA says for the 49 million Americans hitting the road for the Thanksgiving holiday, they will find gas prices mostly similar, if not cheaper, than last year’s holiday. Today’s national average is $2.59. That is just a few cents over the 2018 holiday weekend average of $2.57.
“During Thanksgiving week last year we saw the national gas price average decrease a nickel between Monday and Thursday, that could be the case again this year,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.
