National surveys show consumers’ mood is brightening, and it’s not just holiday cheer. The more positive outlook has a lot to do with the steep drop in gasoline prices since last summer. 2015 holds the promise of more price relief not only at the gas pump but also at grocery stores.
Knox County Toddler Dies From Gunshot Wound
A 3-year-old Ohio boy who shot himself in the head has died from his injuries.
The boy was pronounced dead Tuesday morning after being airlifted to Akron Children’s Hospital the night before.
The shooting occurred at a house northwest of Mount Vernon. The boy’s grandfather, parents and two younger siblings were at home when it happened.
The station reports that family members say a .45-caliber handgun was sitting on top of a television in the living room.
Authorities say a gun recovered from the house is the same gun from the shooting. Knox County Sheriff’s Capt. David Shaffer called it an “unfortunate accident.”
An autopsy is scheduled for the boy.
