Pretty funny misprint that I picked up from an AP story. Not sure if the AP misprinted it, or the KXMD News web site. Maybe that’s the way Gene Laducer “said” it. Hard to say. It’s almost a “non-story”, in itself, because we all knew that we’re paying more for gas, these days.
“(AP) _ Triple-A of North Dakota is expecting a record number of drivers to hit the road over the next four days, in keeping with trends around the country.
Spokesman Gene Laducer says and estimated 63-and-one-half Americans are expected to travel 50 miles or more this holiday season.
And they’ll be paying more at the pump.
Laducer says North Dakotans are paying an average of $2.25 a gallon for gasoline this holiday season. That’s up from $1.82 a gallon last year.
He says prices are about 40 percent higher nationwide.”
“63-and-one-half Americans”. That’s all, huh? Honestly, I don’t even feel that the half-person should be traveling.
