Cruise Night and Car Show


Despite some threatening weather, over 80 cars turned out for the annual cruise night and car show sponsored by the Valentine Classic Motor Club on Saturday evening. The cruise began at Hendersons IGA parking lot about one half hour late due to a storm that moved into the area with light rain and some strong winds. The cars cruised around Valentine and then many of them parked at Scottys Ranchland Foods parking lot for an impromptu show. The Classic Motor Club members served sandwiches and sold T-shirts. Despite the weather numerous people turned out to watch to cruise and view the cars. Next year will be the 30th annual Valentine Classic Motor Club event. Some bigger activities are being planned at this time. Anyone who would like to get involved with the motor club can contact Ken Krisher, Dave Billings or Mike Danielski.

AAA Nebraska Fuel Price Index

AAA’s Daily Fuel Gauge Report, posted at www.fuelgaugereport.com, features a color coded United States map showing the ten states with the highest fuel price averages in bright red. For the past few weeks, Nebraska’s fuel prices were among the highest in the nation due to regional refinery issues that compromised Midwest supply levels. As of today, Nebraska is out of the top ten category with prices down 14 cents from a week ago when unleaded fuel across the state averaged $4.02 a gallon. The downward slide is expected to continue as supply concerns diminish. Currently, Nebraska’s fuel price average is $3.88 a gallon, 27 cents higher than the national average of $3.61 a gallon for unleaded fuel. Ethanol blends are typically 10-12 cents less per gallon. In the days leading up to Memorial Day, motorists in nine states, including Nebraska, paid an average of more than $4 per gallon. The price of gasoline continues to vary dramatically across the country with the lowest gasoline prices found in the Southeast region of the U.S. The highest fuel averages in the continental U.S. are reported primarily in the upper Midwest region and Pacific Coast states.
