Average retail gasoline prices in Vermont have fallen 1 cent per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.90/g yesterday. This compares with the national average that has increased 2.1 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.93/g, according to gasoline price website VermontGasPrices.com.Including the change in gas prices in Vermont during the past week, prices yesterday were 70.6 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 1.6 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 6.8 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 72.1 cents per gallon higher than this day a year ago.”Last week we saw a correction in oil and wholesale gasoline prices,” said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst. “With wholesale gasoline prices down as much as 30 cents per gallon since last Monday, I expect retail gasoline prices to fall as gasoline stations continue to sell through their more expensive inventory and buy cheaper supply, passing on lower prices to motorists.” DeHaan says that the correction in oil prices wasn’t much of a surprise, noting that fundamentals continue to show growing supply. “If the sentiment that ruled last week continues to weigh on traders, we could see the average price for gasoline drop across much of the country, just in time for Memorial Day weekend,” he adds.About VermontGasPrices.comGasBuddy.com operates over 200 live gasoline price-tracking websites, including VermontGasPrices.com.

CAF in partnership with Speak Up Africa has kicked off the #19KickUpsAgainstCovid19 social media challenge, encouraging everyone to share information online to help stop the spread of COVID-19 on the African continent. The new online challenge forms part of the Stay Safe Africa campaign, which seeks to empower communities and individuals to take simple and proven preventive measures to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in Africa. Stay Safe Africa, launched by Dakar-based advocacy tank Speak Up Africa, brings together partners to work towards a common goal of saving lives by increasing investments and awareness to protect our continent from this new threat while ensuring access and treatment from other ongoing health threats. As part of the challenge, influential players are inviting their peers and everyone to participate in the challenge by recording a video of them doing 19 kick ups and sharing it on social media. To date, African football legends Ahmed Hassan (Egypt), Perpetua Nkwocha (Nigeria), Joseph Yobo (Nigeria), Karim Haggui (Tunisia) and Trésor Lomana Lualua (DR Congo) have shared videos. Furthermore, , CAF Deputy General Secretary Anthony Baffoe, has also participated in the challenge, as CAF lends its influential voices, clubs and legends to the campaign to help protect one billion Africans from COVID-19. “Football brings together so many people from different backgrounds, nationalities and languages, and we hope that this social media challenge will bring people together in the same way. Even though the football season has been put on hold, we must all continue to come together, with distance, and fight the spread of this disease and misinformation. I personally took part in the challenge and I hope players and fans will engage and continue the chain ”, Baffoe said.. In Africa, there are currently over 157,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases and over 4,000 deaths. Several risk factors mean the virus could spread quickly across the continent. A coordinated Africa-led approach to stop the spread of COVID-19 is crucial, as high population densities, communal living as well as the constrained access to water and washing facilities all increase the likelihood of coronavirus infections and fatalities. “We are thrilled to have CAF’s influential players and members taking part in this exciting social media challenge and raising awareness of the importance of protecting yourself and others from COVID-19. Sport is a powerful tool to transform the continent, particularly when it comes to health initiatives. We encourage everyone to take part in this online challenge to raise awareness and incite positive change in health practices and behavior”, said Yacine Djibo, Executive Director of Speak Up Africa. read also:CAF considers postponing 2021 AFCON – Report To take part in the Stay Safe Africa social media challenge, share a video of yourself completing 19 kick ups along with the hashtag #19KickUpsAgainstCovid19 and nominate five more people to take part.

THE Guyana Jaguars finished day two of the seventh round Cricket West Indies (CWI) Professional Cricket League (PCL) Four-day encounter against the Leeward Islands Hurricanes on top, taking nine of the tourists first innings wickets to put them on the back foot.When bails were lifted last evening at 22:30hrs in the Day/Night encounter at the National Stadium, Providence, the Hurricanes were 114-9, still 304 behind the Jaguars first innings total of 417. Jeremiah Louis was on one Mervin Matthew yet to score.The wickets were shared between the Guyanese bowlers. Left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul, who is playing in his 100th first class game, finished the day with 6-21, Romario Shepherd 2-29 and Keemo Paul 1-35.Earlier, it was another memorable day for the Guyanese wicket-keeper batsman, who eased to an unbeaten 196 to ensure the hosts amass a huge first innings total. Bramble, playing in his 45th first-class matches, batted for 427 minutes, 291 balls, hitting 23 fours and five sixes.Resuming at 276-8, the centurion, who began the day on 116, along with Permaul were composed for close to an hour, with the 27-year-old Bramble, who was the main architect in the Jaguars’ spirited fightback on day one, continued to score freely.The pair pushed the Jaguars 300, before Permaul was trapped leg before wicket to Mervin Matthew for 11.The Guyana Jaguars players celebrate the dismissal of Shane Burton.The right-handed Bramble, who was joined by Gudakesh Motie, remained unperturbed by the loss of his partner, and continued to combine excellent touch play, with some lusty blows, and brought his 150 with his fourth six, off 231 balls.Soon after the players were force to leave the field after a sharp shower, but when play actually resumed after 44 minutes were lost, the pair took the home team on course for a fourth batting bonus point, reaching the 350-run mark.The two Berbicians ensured the title holders maintained the momentum and kept the scoreboard busy, hitting boundaries freely, with the help by some uncharacteristically field placing.So much was the assault, that the duo put together 110 runs, a last-wicket record stand for Guyana before Motie, who contributed 47 off 93 balls, was stumped attempting a huge heave off the bowling of Terence Warde.The Jaguars opening bowlers Shepherd and Paul then backed up that batting effort, thriving with the new ball, removing both openers Montcin Hodge (9) and Chesney Hughes (10), to expose the visitors’ vulnerable batting order.Shepherd got the first break through when he bowled Hodge while Paul had Hughes in similar fashion just before the break, at 26-2.The final session further compounded the tourists’ woes. They lost Devon Thomas (20), leg before wicket to Shepherd before Permaul created the rest of the damage.He took the scalps of Akeem Saunders (18), Jahmar Hamilton (0), and Rakheem Cornwall (13), to catches at first slip and at the wicket respectively off deliveries which have bounce higher than they expected, while Shane Burton (20) was dismissed off a simple return catch, to reduce the tourists at 107-7.Warde was then trapped leg before wicket, as Permaul completed his 25th five-wicket haul. He then had Gavin Tonge in similar fashion.Play resume at 13.30hrs today.SCOREBOARDGUYANA JAGUARS 1st innings (Overnight 276-8)T. Chanderpaul c wk Hamilton b Louis 6C. Hemraj c Thomas b Cornwall 25L.

Even though he’s undersized, Hamler stood out even in a class of wide receivers like none other.Hamler said he was surprised when Elway picked him after spending his first pick on Jeudy, but he said he was eager to team up with Jeudy, Courtland Sutton and former college teammate DaeSean Hamilton in Denver, where he expects to quickly make his mark.“I’m the smallest guy with the smallest frame,” Hamler said, “but I’ll give you everything I’ve got.”Ojemudia said facing the likes of Jeudy, Hamler, Sutton and tight end Noah Fant in his first training camp will microwave his NFL education.“I mean, that’s going to be big,” Ojemudia said. “It’s going to be harder than the games sometimes.” “I really couldn’t hear him just because my family was yelling and we were all crying,” Hamler said. “So it was kind of hard to hear him, but I hope he has that in mind. I would love to return kicks and punts.”The Broncos’ once-formidable offense has been stuck in neutral for five years and last season Denver averaged a meager 17.6 points a game, 28th in the NFL, as their playoff drought reached four seasons.A tweaked hamstring before the NFL scouting combine prevented Hamler from challenging John Ross’s record of 4.22 seconds set at the 2017 combine.“I won’t say I think I was going to break the record, but I was going to be in the equation,” Hamler said. “I was going to be in the conversation — 4.2 was the only thing on my mind.”He said his hamstring is fine now: “I’m fully healthy. I’m fully recovered. I’ve been running real good.” Denver Broncos build around Drew Lock in the NFL draft Associated Press April 24, 2020 Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditJohn Elway pledged to give Drew Lock more weapons and better protection in an NFL draft teeming with wide receivers and offensive linemen. He delivered.The Denver Broncos general manager provided Lock with two terrific targets and added an athletic center through the first two nights of the draft. Coach Vic Fangio expects Cushenberry to compete for the starting job along with Austin Schlottmann and Patrick Morris.“He’s got license to go in there and compete and win the job if he can,” Fangio said.Elway said Cushenberry could also play guard.Fangio said the draft has been seamless so far with teams having to conduct it via videoconferencing during the COVID-19 pandemic.“We haven’t had any problems communicating with the unusual setup for this draft,” Fangio said. “I think John’s done a great job orchestrating. We had some guys we wanted today and we had chances to go up and get them and John decided to sit and they ended up being the right choices both times. The jewel of Day 2 for Denver, though, was Hamler, who provides a jolt to the Broncos’ offense and special teams.“I think I bring to the table speed, quickness, playmaking ability,” Hamler said. “I’m versatile, I can play outside and I can play in the slot. I can return kicks and punts. I’m a playmaker.”Hamler, who is generously listed at 5-foot-9 and 185 pounds, is elusive with an uncommon burst of speed and has modeled his game after DeSean Jackson and Steve Smith.The Broncos see him as a Tyreek Hill-type playmaker who can also serve as Denver’s kick returner and help the Broncos chase down Hill and the Super Bowl champion Chiefs in the AFC West.Hamler wasn’t sure if Elway told him he’d also return kicks. Elway selected Penn State speedster KJ Hamler with the 46th pick in the second round Friday night, 24 hours after using the 15th overall pick on Alabama standout Jerry Jeudy, the highest Denver has ever selected a wide receiver in the common draft era. In the third round, Elway added protection for his second-year QB by drafting LSU center Lloyd Cushenberry, who was named first-team All-SEC in 2019.Elway didn’t neglect his defense, either, selecting Iowa cornerback Michael Ojemudia and Arkansas D-tackle McTelvin Agim in the third round.Elway has five more picks Saturday.Ojemudia will help fill the void left by the departure of Chris Harris Jr. to the Chargers this offseason, and Agim solidifies a refurbished defensive line that includes trade acquisition Jurrell Casey. “So, we saved draft picks and we got the guys we wanted. I think that comes with experience doing the job. So, I just get out of the way when it comes to that point.”___Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL,Tampa Bay Lightning advance to face Dallas Stars in Stanley Cup finals, beating New York Islanders 2-1 in OT in Game 6
