Tennessee Department of Health warns of Severe Flu Season

December 20, 2014

Tennesseans Reminded to Get Flu Vaccine Now

Tennessee Department of Health - TDOHNashville, TN – Tennessee Department of Health surveillance notes a steady increase in influenza activity in Tennessee and warns the 2014-2015 flu season could be severe. TDH urges everyone to protect themselves and their families by getting a flu shot now.

“Early indications suggest this could be a more severe flu season than we have had for some time,” said TDH Commissioner John Dreyzehner, MD, MPH. “Vaccination is likely to reduce the risk of severe illness even if not all strains are matched to the vaccine throughout the season. Because a flu vaccine is still the best protection, get it now if you have not done so.”

AAA reports Gas Prices Fall for 73rd Consecutive Day

December 8, 2014

AAATampa, FL – Gas prices are falling like the winter-time snow. The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded ($2.70) dropped 10 cents in the past week, and is the lowest price since September 2010. The average price has fallen for 73 consecutive days – dropping 66 cents since September 26th.

“The shale boom continues putting downward pressure on the price of oil, which pushes gas prices even lower,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Oil prices are forecast to drift lower next week, which means gas prices will follow suit. Gas prices could fall another 15 cents before the end of the year. It’s possible that motorists could find some stations selling gas as low $2.00 a gallon in some markets, but it’s unlikely that average prices would hit those levels.” [Read more]

AAA says some U.S. Drivers may see $2.00 Gas Prices for the Holidays

December 1, 2014

OPEC Decision causes Oil Prices to Plunge

AAATampa, FL – U.S. motorists in southern and mid-west states could see a handful of gas stations hit the $2.00 a gallon mark just in time for the Christmas holiday season.

OPEC’s failure to cut oil production could cause gas prices to fall by as much as 20 cents. The national average has fallen for 67 consecutive days the longest streak since 2008. The streak of declines is 58 days in Florida, 59 in Georgia, and 16 in Tennessee.

“Drivers in southeastern states, such as Tennessee, may see a select few stations selling gas at or below $2.00 in the coming weeks,” said Josh Carrasco, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “The chances of gasoline averaging $2.00 per gallon are highly unlikely. Oil prices would have to drop another $25.00 to $30.00 a barrel before we reach the $2.00 threshold.” [Read more]
