So far, Germantown Alderman Mike Palazzolo has no opposition in his bid to become the next mayor of Germantown in the Nov. 4 elections.

NEW YORK (AP) – The price of gasoline looks familiar this Memorial Day. For the third year in a row, the national average will be within a penny or two of $3.64 per gallon.

Stability wasn't always the norm. Between 2003 and 2008 average retail gasoline prices more than doubled, reaching an all-time high of $4.11 per gallon in 2008. Prices then collapsed as the U.S. plunged into recession. But after a two-year run-up between 2009 and 2011, the price of gasoline has remained in a range of roughly $3.25 to $3.75 per gallon.

14. ‘Higher Level’ -

But they didn’t like the $2,700 to $3,000 price estimates they received. So Price and some friends got a good price on some lumber in Jackson, Tenn., rented a table saw from Dixie Rents and put up a wooden fence that came in at $800 to $900.
