(Photo by Nick Cammett/Getty Images) The Cleveland Browns expect to know soon how long Deshaun Watson will be absent from the lineup, which means the Dawg Pound should soon expect to see their franchise address the quarterback position accordingly. That doesn’t mean that Cleveland will necessarily bring in another signal caller, after adding Jacoby Brissett, Josh Dobbs and Josh Rosen to the roster behind Watson already this offseason — but it very well could. If Watson is set to miss the majority of the 2022 regular season following the NFL’s appeal to his already six-game suspension, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo becomes the best available option to replace him as a bonafide NFL starter.

    by Bruce Walker   Michigan consumers considering the purchase of a new or used car or truck may be wise to put off replacing their current vehicle, according to University of Michigan-Flint Economics Professor Christopher Douglas. An iSeeCars analysis of 1.8 million car sales in February 2022 concluded prices for used cars are up 35% nationally. In Detroit, used car prices were up 31%, or $7,442.77 over last year. This spike in prices is in part due to a scarcity in new cars caused by the microchip shortage. However, Douglas told The Center Square the current rate of inflation in the United States and the Russian invasion of Ukraine are also contributing factors. “Six months ago, I thought waiting until the chip shortage was resolved was the smart way to go,” Douglas said. “I think I have changed my mind,” he continued. Douglas said the current rate of U.S. inflation – currently edging just under 8% –is proving a significant factor in the price of new and used vehicles. “The chip shortage doesn’t appear to be ending anytime soon due to...

    CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) — The average U.S. price of regular-grade gasoline shot up a whopping 79 cents over the past two weeks to a record-setting $4.43 per gallon (3.8 liters). Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Survey said Sunday the new price exceeds by 32 cents the prior all-time high of $4.11 set in July 2008. The price at the pump is $1.54 higher than it was a year ago. Lundberg said gas prices are likely to remain high in the short term as crude oil costs soar amid global supply concerns following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Nationwide, the highest average price for regular-grade gas is in the San Francisco Bay Area, at $5.79 per gallon. The lowest average is in Tulsa, Oklahoma, at $3.80 per gallon. According to the survey, the average price of diesel also spiked, up $1.18 over two weeks, to $5.20 a gallon. Diesel costs $2.11 more than it did one year ago. Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

The average price of a gallon of regular gasoline in Los Angeles County was $5.288 on Sunday, according to AAA, while a gallon of diesel cost $5.598. That is up 9.7 percent from just last week and 13 percent over last month. And when compared to the same time last year, the average gasoline price on Sunday was 57.5 percent higher.

The price for premium at the station was $7.29, ABC 7 reports. Meanwhile, the national average for a gallon of gas hit $4.009 on Sunday, according to AAA, which is the highest since July 2008. Experts blame the war in Ukraine, coupled with rising inflation at home of 7.5 percent for the sky-high gas prices in nearly...

    Xcel EnergyThe Minnesota Public Utilities Commission estimated each Xcel Energy customer could face a one-time increase of $250.When power systems failed across the southern U.S. last month because of winter storms, it didn’t just impact Texas and surrounding states. Minnesota’s heat and electricity stayed on, but utility companies and state regulators say the chaos that drove up natural gas prices will spike customers’ heating bills in the state anyway. With Minnesotans already struggling economically during the COVID-19 pandemic, state lawmakers are now considering intervention to prevent higher utility bills since Minnesotans aren’t at fault for the natural gas problems. Screen shotAbout 90 percent of Minnesotans heat their home with natural gas, and the year-round average monthly bill is $57, said Katie Sieben, who chairs the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission.To learn more about what went wrong and how to fix it, legislators held a hearing Friday that brought together top officials from the state DFL-led House, GOP-controlled Senate, Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (PUC) and Attorney General Keith Ellison. Xcel Energy and the natural gas utility CenterPoint Energy also testified. Here’s what...

It adds to the wild volatility in markets this week, as the stock prices of heavily-shorted companies like GameStop and AMC surged dramatically thanks to a rush of amateur investors inspired by the Reddit forum WallStreetBets. Another subreddit group, SatoshiStreetBets, led investors to pump up the price of Dogecoin, a cryptocurrency inspired by the popular "doge" meme. Dogecoin was up 800% in the last 24 hours at one point. It's not the first time Musk's tweeting habits have led to a spike in the price of an asset. The entrepreneur most recently helped extend a rally in GameStop's share...
