AAA says “Miles-to-Empty” Warning Fuels When Drivers Decide to Fill Up

August 1, 2021

AAAWashington, D.C. – In-dash fuel economy displays estimate the number of miles a vehicle gets per gallon, including how many “miles to empty.”

AAA tested the accuracy of these systems and found their estimates vary significantly over shorter trips or are dependent on the consistency of things that affect gas mileage like speed and acceleration.

AAA reports National Gas Price Average Drops Some as Crude Oil Prices undergo Dramatic Fluctuation

July 30, 2021

AAAWashington, D.C. – Motorists saw some positive change at the pump on the week with 31 state gas price averages declining one to five cents. The national gas price average pushed two cents cheaper to $3.15. One factor contributing to the decline was U.S. gasoline demand remaining relatively flat on the week.

At this point, it is too early to say if cheaper pump prices will be sustained or continue their downward trend. Part of the unknown is due to fluctuating crude prices, which dropped to a low of $66.00/bbl last Monday, but were back over $70.00/bbl by the end of the week.

July 22, 2021

TSSAA says School Leaders emphasize Sportsmanship in 2020, Beyond

July 22, 2021

Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA)Murfreesboro, TN – The brightest of bright lights in Americana’s high school sports scene, those of ‘Friday Night Lights’ fame in Odessa, Texas, also are the lights of Michel Sanchez’s hometown.

She’s seen those lights, lived beneath their glare and the shadows they casted – not merely during four quarters of a high school football game but throughout the days, weeks, and months that comprised a season and a cultural phenomenon.

Now executive principal at Cane Ridge High School in Antioch, Sanchez also knows the attention from those pressured settings doesn’t always lend itself to best life lessons.

AAA says Americans Cut Driving almost in half during beginning stage of COVID-19 Crisis

July 19, 2021

AAAWashington, D.C. – The COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic and associated restrictions in the spring of 2020, such as stay-at-home orders, led to a drastic drop in U.S. road travel and a sharp increase in the number of people who chose to stay home all day.

While the dramatic change in traffic patterns was widely noted last year, new research from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety’s New American Driving Survey (2020) provides compelling month-by-month data that examines the types of trips and the characteristics of the people who altered their driving habits.

New AAA data shows that rideshare, transit, and taxi use plummeted, did not fully recover. (AAA)

United States Gas Demand Soars

July 15, 2021
