Americans Will 'Do Anything' To Stay Young.... Looking


A recent survey polling 2,000 people found that 54% of Americans have tried anti-aging tips and tricks they found on YouTube.

Gas Prices Highest in 7 Years


We can expect to pay more to fill up our tanks at least through the end of August. The average price of gas nationwide has climbed to $3.13, a high for the year and up 40% since January 1. And fuel costs aren't expected to drop anytime soon. According to AAA, prices will "rise another 10 to 20 cents at the pump between now and the end of August." The main factors behind the steep climb in gas prices: rising global oil prices, businesses reopening as COVID-19 eases across most of the U. S. and pent-up demand for travel. Tuesday's national average gas price of $3.13 remains below the $3.70 reached in 2014. The highest ever price for a gallon of regular gas was $4.11 in July of 2008. Around the country, Idaho has seen the biggest spike in fuel prices over the last week, with gas costs jumping 10 cents. Other states seeing sharp increases of late: Alaska (up 9 cents); Colorado, Oregon and Washington (7 cents); Ohio, Utah and Wyoming (6 cents); and Montana and Nevada (5 cents). Mississippi has the cheapest gas, at $2.75 a gallon.



Biden Introduces Door-to-Door Vaccination Effort


President Joe Biden announced Tuesday that his administration would step up efforts to get Americans vaccinated against COVID-19 with a new program that would go “door to door, literally knocking on doors,” urging people to get the shots. During his remarks the president said that, “We need to go community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and oft times, door to door, literally knocking on doors” to encourage vaccination. Those knocking on the doors will offer information about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine. The administration failed to reach its self imposed goal of having 70% of the nation’s eligible people at least partially vaccinated by July 4th. In a briefing earlier in the day, Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that by the end of this week nearly 160 million Americans would be fully vaccinated. Biden suggested that the unique door knocking approach was needed now that “we are continuing to wind down the mass vaccination sites that did so much in the spring.” In addition to the door to door information campaign, Psaki said other measures would include a “renewed emphasis on getting the vaccines to more primary care doctors,” and increasing access for workers at job sites.

Aaron Rodgers and teammate Bryson DeChambeau won the charity golf event against Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson, making it the second time the latter duo has lost “The Match.” Brady and Mickelson lost to Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning last spring.
