National Gas Price Average Drops 14 Cents, But is it headed for a Climb?

December 5, 2022

AAAWashington, D.C. – The recent steep plunge in domestic gas prices may be affected by the results of Sunday’s meeting of OPEC+, a group of 23 oil-producing nations, including Saudi Arabia and Russia.

Domestic gasoline prices have dropped 26 cents nationally in the past two weeks. But OPEC+ decided to maintain output cuts of 2 million barrels per day, about 2% of world demand.

The purpose of the move is to boost the global price of oil, which has fallen recently on fears of demand weakness, specifically in China. Regardless, the national average pump price for a gallon of gas dropped 14 cents in the past week to $3.40.

Monitoring CWD Gets Easier with Introduction of New Tool

November 19, 2022

Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency - TWRANashville, TN – Tennessee deer hunters have just got a new tool for keeping their eyes on chronic wasting disease (CWD) in deer and elk herds in the state and across North America.

Since its discovery, CWD has been a major concern to hunters and wildlife professionals alike. Part of the concern has been the difficulty that state and provincial wildlife agencies have in coordinating and communicating information about CWD to hunters and other interested publics.

Officials with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and partners have had a CWD Response Plan in place since prior to the first confirmation of the disease in the state in late 2018.
