Gas Prices Continue to Rise

Gas Prices Continue to Rise

Average retail gasoline prices in Fresno have risen 4.9 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $4.14/g yesterday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.77/g, according to gasoline price website FresnoGasPrices.com.

 

Including the change in gas prices in Fresno during the past week, prices yesterday were 6.6 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 3.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 13.4 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 15.9 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

 

"I'd probably sound like a broken record at this point if I were to tell folks that crude prices breached and fell under $100 late last week. I'm sure I'll be flooded with motorists asking why gasoline prices haven't fallen yet," chuckled GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

Chukchansi pledges $1 million for language study and revitalization

 

(May 7, 2012) – The Chukchansi variety of the Yokuts language will be preserved and revitalized thanks to a $1 million gift from the Picayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians to Fresno State’s College of Arts and Humanities for the Department of Linguistics.

 

The gift will provide funding for programs and research support to document, preserve and revitalize the Chukchansi language in collaboration with the Department of Linguistics.

Members of the tribal council say they have made great strides in recent years to sustain their language and culture, but only a handful of fluent Chukchansi speakers remain.
