Okay, I'm not going to lie. I really, really want one of the new iPhones. Do you? They come out today. Vote on the Morning Show Poll at www.977thebreeze.com. And if you have an iPhone from last year, are you upset you paid $600 for one, when the new phones are better and costs $199?
HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THE NEW MILK JUGS?
A simple change to the design of the gallon milk jug, adopted by Wal-Mart and Costco, seems made for the times. The jugs are cheaper to ship and better for the environment, the milk is fresher when it arrives in stores, and it costs less. The jugs have no real spout, and their unorthodox shape makes consumers feel like novices at the simple task of pouring a glass of milk. The new jugs have many advantages from their point of view, and Sam’s Club intends to roll them out broadly, making them more prevalent. The redesign of the gallon milk jug, experts say, is an example of the changes likely to play out in the American economy over the next two decades.
GOOD NEWS ABOUT GAS PRICES... SORT OF.
So, the price of gas is completely outrageous, and that stinks... but here's one GOOD thing about expensive gas.
A new study from the University of Alabama at Birmingham has found that for every 10% increase in gas prices... the number of traffic deaths drops by about 2.3%. Why?
Because when people can't afford as much gas, they drive less. And when they do get behind the wheel, they're driving slower in an attempt to get the best gas mileage...
According to the researchers, if the price of gas stays at $4 a gallon for the rest of the year, the number of traffic fatalities in the U.S. could drop by more than 1,000 per month.
