PIC: Tom Hanks’ Son Was In Western New York
The new film A Man Called Otto has been the talk of the area since we found out that Hanks was in town filming. Tom Hanks has also been showing up in plenty of wedding photos as well. He has been "photo bombing" plenty of pictures and since Niagara Falls is the "Honey Moon Capital of the World", there is a good chance that we will see him in a few local wedding albums as well.
Traveling to see the Falls this summer? It may cost you! Gas prices are on the rise, yet again.
While we wait for the tax "holiday" in Buffalo and Western New York to get here on June 1st, prices around the area have gone up, again! As we start a new week and push toward Memorial Day, the prices have seemed to start rising.
According to Triple A, the average cost for a gallon of regular gas is now $4.35. That's up 13 cents in just the past week and is five cents more than this time one month ago.
The Tweet below was from last Friday and it has gone up since then!
I drive in on Route 5 each morning and was shocked to see $4.45 a gallon today! Both Erie County and Niagara County are preparing for a tax holiday that will cap the tax on gas at a certain price. This coincides with the same plan for New York State. But that won't happen for a few weeks and there is also a major driving weekend coming with Memorial Day. The good news, if there is any, is that perhaps with the better weather you won't leave the car idling as much and perhaps you can walk or take a bike to places that are closer to the house?
