AAA reports National Gas Price Average rises One Cent

 

All Eyes on Tropical Storms

AAATampa, FL – At $2.18, the national gas price average increased by one cent on the week according to AAA. That is the same price as a month ago and 41 cents cheaper than a year ago.

The minimal change reflects the slow movement at pumps across the country on the week. The vast majority of states (30) saw pump prices fluctuate by a penny, if at all.

AAA says the National Average may have Peaked for the Year

 

AAATampa, FL – The national gas price average has pushed only as expensive as $2.20 since the beginning of the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, and that happened just one month ago.

In the last four weeks, motorists have seen the national average slowly decrease, down to today’s average of $2.17 despite gasoline demand last week reaching the highest measurement (up to 8.88 million b/d) since Mid-March, according to the latest Energy Information Administration (EIA) weekly report.

AAA says Gas Pump Prices Pushing Cheaper, Again

 

AAATampa, FL – On the week, the majority of states saw gas prices decrease minimally – by one to two cents or saw no change at the pump. Though low, the volatility was enough to drive the national average down a penny from last Monday to $2.17. Today’s average is two cents less than last month and 49 cents cheaper than a year ago.

“As we move into the second week of the August, it is pricing out to be the second cheapest start to the month in more than a decade,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.

If Austin Peay Could Talk: Jessica’s Story

 

Of culture and compromise             

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – I am a descendent of the Gullah Geechee people of South Carolina. We are people, culture, and language, maintaining our African heritage with pride and demonstrating a resolve to hold our connection to that history.

Our language is a Creole dialect and unique, but growing up, I acquired an understanding of how differences in language can be rooted in prejudice.

Lamar Alexander: Making the case for preserving Andrew Jackson statue

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – This week, Senate Democrats voted to block consideration of U.S. Senator Tim Scott, of South Carolina’s, police reform legislation. I voted to begin debate on Senator Scott’s proposal, which I co-sponsored, because it will make police officers more accountable, encourage departments to ban chokeholds and adopt best practices, provide better training to police officers, and make lynching a federal crime. 

Congress should have a serious debate and consider amendments on these important issues, and it is a shame that Senate Democrats won’t allow the Senate to even begin to consider this legislation.
