Utah gas prices among nation’s highest
Utah’s gasoline prices are still well above the national average despite a downward turn that has taken place over most of the country, according to AAA Utah, which tracks gas prices as a service to consumers.
The average price for a gallon of regular, self-serve gasoline in Utah is currently $2.94. This is a 4-cent drop from AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report on Aug. 15 and is 4 cents higher than last year at this time. Only four states, Nevada, California, Idaho and Hawaii have prices higher than Utah.
The current national average price is $2.61. This is 39 cents lower than last month and 36 cents lower than a year ago.
The states in the Intermountain West have enjoyed double-digit decreases in the price of regular, self-serve gasoline.
Tanger Outlet to host breast cancer awareness campaign
Shoppers visiting the Tanger Outlet Center in Park City always have plenty of brand name choices. This fall, they can also choose to make a big difference in their community and help in the fight to find a cure for breast cancer. Tanger’s 13th annual Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign is taking place through Oct. 31. Funds raised during this year’s campaign will benefit the American Cancer Society – Great West Division.
This year, more than 211,000 new cases of breast cancer are expected in the United States. Breast cancer is the leading cause of death in women between the ages of 40-55. Approximately 1,600 men are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer this year and 400 are predicted to die according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
This fall, Tanger shoppers can save even more money and help save lives in their community each time they purchase the all new ‘pink and choose’ discount card. For a $2 donation, shoppers will receive a special discount card that will give them three bonus discount offers of 10 to 20 percent off at participating Tanger stores nationwide. The pink and choose cards will be available at the Tanger Customer Service Center.
