AAAWashington, D.C. – Consumers are spending $69 more a month to fill-up compared to last summer. According to AAA, gasoline expenses are accounting, on average, for seven percent of an American’s 2018 annual income, a one and half percent increase since summer of 2017.

June 10, 2018

AAA

AAAOrlando, FL – Afternoon downpours could spell disaster for millions of road trippers this summer, thanks to an unlikely suspect – tires.

Compared to new tires, tires worn to a tread depth of just 4/32” exhibit an average increased stopping distance of 87 feet for a passenger car and 86 feet for a light truck. (AAA)

Tennessee Department of Agriculture

Tennessee Department of AgricultureNashville, TN – A stranger is just a friend you haven’t yet met, the saying goes. The same is true for the unfamiliar vegetables that will be showing up at farmers markets and in community supported agriculture (CSA) boxes this summer.

As the national movement toward eating more fresh and local produce grows, so does the need for more variety. Other, less nutritive foods are tempting if you grow bored with a limited roster of vegetables and recipes.

Many vegetables that are unfamiliar at farmers markets are actually items we already enjoy at restaurants.
