South Dakota’s gas price average is at its lowest point in six weeks 
July 13, 2016  Pump prices nationwide have now fallen for 30 straight days – the longest streak since August/September of last year – and are at their lowest mark for this date since 2004. Today’s national average for regular gasoline is $2.23 per gallon, four cents less than a week ago, fifteen cents below the price one month ago, and 53 cents cheaper than one year ago. Approximately a quarter of gas stations nationwide – 25,000 – are now selling gasoline for less than $2. Today, for the first time since June 1, South Dakota’s statewide average for regular gasoline hit $2.31 per gallon,” said Marilyn Buskohl, spokeswoman for AAA South Dakota. “However, if you’re traveling in or through Sioux Falls, you might want to fill-up there for $2.10 per gallon. The city wide average for Rapid City is 32 cents higher according to GasPrices.AAA.com.” The nation’s least expensive states are South Carolina ($1.93), Oklahoma ($2.00), Mississippi ($2.00), Missouri ($2.01) and Alabama ($2.02).
The West Coast remains the most expensive region in the country, led by California ($2.88), Hawaii ($2.83), Washington ($2.67), Alaska ($2.66) and Nevada ($2.57). Gasoline prices are poised to continue their slide this week as both crude oil and wholesale gasoline prices turned lower last week. West Texas Intermediate and Brent crude were each down more than 7% last week, with WTI falling from $48.99 to $45.41 over the course of the holiday-shortened trading week. The price of oil currently reflects slightly more than half the price of gasoline at the pump, so lower oil prices are expected to result in lower retail gas prices for drivers. Additionally, the most recent Department of Energy report cited domestic gasoline production as just 100,000 barrels per day short of the all-time record, lending further momentum to falling prices. Although retail gas prices may continue to slide this month, there are a number of factors that could cause prices to rise again,” said Buskohl. “These includes an increase in the global price of crude oil due to disruptions in supply; stronger than expected economic indicators or geopolitical tensions overseas; as well as domestic factors such as refinery issues, production cuts due to lower prices, stronger than anticipated demand or hurricanes that could impact distribution and production.”

Slow down, kids at play
Jul 06 16  by Lucy

Residents in Presho with small children have expressed concerns with regards to vehicles traveling too fast along streets used by children walking to and from the Presho City Park and Pool.  
At the May city council meeting, it was discussed that another 15 mph speed limit sign needed  to be added to Willow Street at the alley west of the Methodist Church to remind drivers of the reduced speed limit by the park and pool.  Signs are already posted on Fir Ave., north and south of the pool, but families and day care providers along Fir Ave., are still witnessing vehicles traveling too fast along the street.
According to statue, the speed limit on all residential streets within the city limits is 25 mph unless posted.  School zones and other areas where children are present such as parks, ball fields and pools are 15 mph.
Presho City Council member Angela Ehlers, who also lives on Fir Ave, said drivers need to be aware of the reduced speed zones in areas where children gather.
“Kids are going to the pool or park to play, and drivers need to be aware and extra alert,” Ehlers said.  
The city of Presho doesn’t have a law enforcement officer to enforce the posted speed limits but residents can still call the Lyman County Sheriff’s office to report drivers not obeying traffic laws.
“If they can identify the vehicle or the driver, we can visit with them and if that doesn’t stop the problem, residents can also file an official complaint against the driver,” said Sheriff Steve Manger.  “Many times once we talk to the offender the issue will stop.”
With the wheat harvest getting underway, Ehlers also wanted to remind producers that they are encouraged to use the truck route to the local elevator and avoid Presho’s Main Street.  
“Fully loaded trucks are hard on Main Street and are also difficult to stop,” said Ehlers.  “You never know when a kid will dart out into the street.”
The truck route is located on the west side of Presho and turns onto Railway Street near the cemetery.  Truckers can also access the elevator on the east side of Presho using 2nd street, then N. Maple to Railway Street.

“Knee high by the 4th of July”
Jun 29 16  by Lucy

Ryan and Lorlen Husman’s son Raylan, age 1, didn’t stand still long enough to determine the height of the corn in a field at Husman’s farm southwest of Kennebec Sunday night, but brothers
Griffin (5), who is shorter than the corn,  and Easton (10), demonstrate that the 2016 corn crop is more than knee high by the 4th of July!
Note the steel post  with black marks, on the left-hand side of the photo.  The Husman brothers are tracking the growth of the corn by marking the height every Sunday evening.  The corn grew a foot from June 18th to June 25th.
