Gas prices lead to busier roads in Savannah

AAA expects record travelers this 4th of July weekend

Some 37.5 million Americans will drive to their destinations, an increase of 2.9 percent over last year, AAA predicted, while 3.44 million people will be flying for Independence Day, increasing air travel by 4.6 percent over last year.

Like much of Midwest, some of those who fill up in OH are seeing gas prices below $2 per gallon.

Video of Mayweather and McGregor training side by side is shocking
In the caption he wrote: "I know I'm not the same fighter I was 20 years ago, I'm not the same fighter I was ten years ago". Even well away from his prime Mayweather is risky , and his speed and accuracy might just prove too much for McGregor.

Holiday weekends are always busy weekends for travel regardless, but AAA believes that lower gas prices could make this year a record breaking year for travelers for Fourth of July weekend. Enjoy it while it lasts: Experts say prices will start inching higher soon. On the week, gas prices fell in 46 states. By contrast, Champaign-Urbana has the cheapest gasoline, at $2.06 per gallon.

SC continues to register the lowest average in the nation at $1.90, followed by Alabama at $1.96, according to AAA. Joseph area is down 11-cents to $2.23, which is also two-cents lower than this time previous year.

Fantasy basketball trade reaction | Ricky Rubio to the Jazz
I believe the Jazz have a team that will give him the best chance of winning, and they are close to becoming a serious contender. Rubio was a bad three-point shooter, and Jimmy Butler and Andrew Wiggins are midrange players who can get to the rim.

AAA says record refinery rates, high gasoline and crude inventory are among the contributing factors causing the downard price trend. Consumers can find gas for $2.00 or less at one out of every four gas stations in the country. Moreover, last week Baker Hughes, Inc. reported that for the first time in 24 weeks, the USA lost two oil rigs - bringing the total rig count to 756.

"The combination of lukewarm demand and increased gasoline and crude output continues to put downward pressure on gas prices", said Chuck Mai, spokesman for AAA Oklahoma. The overall figure reflects a 3 percent increase compared to a year ago. Kansas' average gas price registers 11th lowest in the nation.
