RACINE – A Racine man was accused of hitting a woman with a hockey stick.
If you’ve had to refuel lately, needn’t tell you that gasoline prices have nearly doubled in the past 17 months. In fact, the national average price has reached a seven-year high. According to the AAA, a gallon of unleaded gasoline costs an average of $ 3.27 nationwide. That’s seven cents more than last week. Natural gas has also risen sharply. The US Energy Information Administration says prices rose 180% over the past year. Prices have skyrocketed after OPEC and allied oil-producing countries maintained their phased approach to restoring pandemic-reduced production and agreed to add just 400,000 barrels a day in November. The decision by the Vienna-based oil cartel, along with non-members including Russia, follows with its set schedule to replenish that volume of oil every month until the deep cuts made in 2020 to support prices during the depth of the pandemic recession are restored next year. The situation has changed since then as the global economy recovered. The decision comes amid increased demand for oil products like gasoline and kerosene as driving and flying increase around the globe due to easing restrictions to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, there are unusually high prices for natural gas, which are pushing some electricity producers in Asia to switch from natural gas to oil-based products in order to support prices.
