Gas is cheap, but for many motorists there’s nowhere to go
DALLAS --- U.S. gasoline prices have dropped to their lowest levels in four years, and they are almost sure to go lower as oil prices plunge.     Price-tracking services put the national average Monday around $2 a gallon. Some stations were spotted charging under a dollar. But don't expect a stampede to the pumps. Demand is weak because so many Americans are under shelter-in-place rules and businesses have been shuttered because of the coronavirus outbreak. "For most Americans who are home practicing social distancing and not driving to work or taking their children to school, you are only filling up maybe once a week, maybe every couple of weeks," said Jeane...Keep on reading: Gas is cheap, but for many motorists there’s nowhere to go

Canada effectively nationalizing private payrolls amid virus
TORONTO --- Canada announced Monday it is effectively nationalizing many private payrolls by offering businesses large and small a 75% wage subsidy for their employees amid the coronavirus pandemic. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said businesses that have seen a 30% decrease in revenue are eligible. "For people to get through this tough time and for the economy to rebound, people have to keep their job," Trudeau said. The prime minister said the government will cover up to 75% of salary on the first 58,700 Canadian dollars (US$41,474) that is earned. That means up to $847 Canadian (US$598) a week. Trudeau did not put a price tag on it or say how long it would last but he c...Keep on reading: Canada effectively nationalizing private payrolls amid virus

New York governor begs for help amid ‘staggering’ death toll
NEW YORK --- New York's governor issued an urgent appeal for medical volunteers Monday amid a "staggering" number of deaths from the coronavirus, as he and health officials warned that the crisis unfolding in New York City is just a preview of what other communities across the U.S. could soon face.       "Please come help us in New York now," Gov. Andrew Cuomo said as the state's death toll climbed by more than 250 in a single day for a total of more than 1,200 victims, most of them in the city. He said an additional 1 million health care workers are needed to tackle the crisis. "We've lost over 1,000 New Yorkers," Cuomo said.
