RVIA Says Trailer Sales Up

The Recreational Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA), reports that
towable RV shipments have grown steadily over the past five years, with
323,000 units shipped in 2005, a 15.4 percent increase over 2004. An
influx of younger buyers has spurred this trend toward RV trailers,
particularly toy-hauler types.

7-Eleven Drops Citgo Gas

The convenience store chain 7-Eleven is ending its business
relation with Venezuelan-owned Citgo. Recent derogatory statements about
U.S. President Bush by Venezuela’s dictator Hugo Chavez “didn’t tempt
us to stay with Citgo,” a company executive told the Associated Press.

Driver Inattention Contributes to Half of Crashes

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says
that driver inattention contributes to half of all accidents. Cell
phones are a major source of distraction, and legislation to regulate
their use while driving is pending or in effect in many states.
