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.
Holiday traditions are something many people look forward to this time of year and often made fun of in movies like “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” where Clark W. Griswold gets a little too ambitious with his exterior light decorating. While some people may not go as far as the Griswold’s, WOSU reports some people have put traditions aside and gone green this season not green as in holly and ivy, but green as the environment.
