St. Louis, MO – AAA Motor Club says this holiday season will see higher gas prices for Missourians, but fewer cars on the road.
The average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gas yesterday was a $1.25, up about three cents since last week.
Analysts predict prices will continue to rise slightly through New Year's, but not because of the holidays. Anxiety in the oil market and rises in the crude oil and wholesale gas prices will be bigger factors.
Washington, DC – U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert has named former Illinois Governor Jim Thompson to the panel that will investigate the September 11th attacks.
Republicans and Democrats each appoint five members of the ten-member board.
Hastert picked Thompson two days after Henry Kissinger resigned as the commission's chair. Thompson was Illinois' longest serving governor and is currently the co-chair of Governor-elect Rod Blagojevich's transition team.
