$4.56 For A Gallon Of Gas in Foggy Bottom

$4.56 For A Gallon Of Gas in Foggy Bottom

You remember that Exxon station that I posted a story about back in October?  You know, the one on Virginia Avenue between Foggy Bottom and Georgetown that was charging $4.25 for a gallon of regular gas?

Well, they're at it again.

As you can see in the photo above, the current price for regular gas has been raised to a whopping $4.56 per gallon, plus gas is $4.68 per gallon, and supreme costs $4.85 per gallon.

My question is how much higher will it go?

Childhelp’s Capitol CAREaoke Rocked the Reagan Building to Fight Child Abuse

On Tuesday night, the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center was rockin’, thanks to a host of journalists, politicians, and sports personalities. The room was busting with a who’s who crowd, and they were all there for one common [and very commendable] purpose: to raise money and awareness in support of Childhelp's fight against child abuse and neglect. The event—dubbed CAREaoke—is an annual affair that benefits the organization, and while award-winning journalist Rebecca Cooper (WJLA) was the evening’s hostess, she is also the event’s founder.

Bridging the Generation Gap in Egypt and the American Workplace

The historical transfer of power in Egypt has seen the departure of an entrenched 82-year-old dictator and a movement toward a democratically elected government where young Egyptians will have a major voice in politics and policies of the future.  A major key to a successful transition that will allow Egypt to move forward as a stable, innovative nation lies in respect and understanding between generations.

The same is true with American businesses.

Innovation is the intersection of the past and present that leads to the future.  That’s why it is so important that business leaders publicly acknowledge the contribution of each generation, applaud the unique strengths brought to the table by workers of different ages, and encourage everyone to share their viewpoints as a way to make a strong team even stronger.
