Business Letters: Gasoline Prices, USDA Loans, TSV Supports Stray Hearts | Companies
Gasoline prices hit $ 3.05 per gallon
AAA New Mexico Weekend Gas Watch reported that statewide gas prices per gallon for unleaded fuel hit a low of $ 3.05 this month. That’s two cents less than last week today and $ 1.04 more per gallon than a year ago.
On average, Farmington residents currently pay the highest price per gallon at $ 3.28. Albuquerque drivers pay the least at $ 2.99. Taos County’s residents pay about $ 3.11 on average. Nationally, the average gasoline price per gallon is $ 3.15.
The demand for gas has increased year over year, according to the Energy Information Administration. The weekly number of regional fuel deliveries also rose slightly. Crude oil prices have fluctuated recently amid concerns about rising COVID-19 cases in many areas of the country. Hurricane Ida is expected to affect gas prices by the end of the month as the tropical storm crippled 90 percent of Gulf Coast refineries when it hit land last week.
USDA offers one percent rural home renovation loan
According to a USDA press release, a new US Department of Agriculture program is offering loans of up to $ 40,000 to very low income homeowners to repair, upgrade, or “upgrade” their homes at a fixed rate of one percent that month.
Known as the Section 504 Home Repair Program, the credit initiative is aimed at homeowners in rural areas with fewer than 35,000 residents. The program also offers grants of up to $ 10,000 to elderly residents on very low incomes to help eliminate health and safety hazards in their homes.
Alice Choyou, a Gallup homeowner, was featured in this month’s press release. She used funds to fix a leak in her sewer system that posed a risk.
To find out if you are eligible for funding, call (505) 761-4950.
