Happy Memorial Day, Alaska!
Memorial Day is more than picnics, fishing, and time out on the water with friends and family, it’s a time to remember our fallen heroes and those that have proudly served in the military.
As you celebrate Memorial Day, it’s important to remember the many sacrifices of our brave men and women in uniform – those that fell during conflict and those that were wounded. We owe them a great big thank you!
I hope you and your families have a safe and wonderful time in each other’s company, but please remember this celebration is about those that served in the military, those that sacrificed – the ultimate sacrifice, those that fought to protect our freedoms.
God bless you and God bless our military men and women who have served this great nation in the past, in the present, and in the future.
From the Desk of Congressman Don Young

Anchorage, Alaska – May 22, 2015 – As families prepare to honor fallen service members this Memorial Day weekend, Better Business Bureau serving Alaska, Oregon and Western Washington reminds the public that scammers have their sights set on ripping off military personnel.
Con artists often use malicious tactics to steal the money and identities of deployed troops and military families.
Phone Scams: Impostors pose as Veterans Administration employees and call to “verify” personal information, sometimes using scare tactics like VA benefits cancellations to collect birthdates, Social Security numbers and bank account information.
Rental Listings: Cyber thieves create bogus online rental listings and lure in potential victims by offering military discounts, requiring that deposits and rent be wired to “landlords” who are out of the country.
Military Loans: Sketchy lenders promise “instant approvals” and no credit checks, but loans often carry extremely high interest rates and hidden fees.
Insurance Policies: Solicitors make false statements or inflate claims regarding the benefits of policies they offer, using high-pressured sales pitches to sell expensive—and often unnecessary—life insurance policies.
BBB advises consumers to research about businesses and charities by visiting bbb.org before giving out personal information, making payments or giving donations. Deployed service members can also sign up for “active duty” credit alerts to minimize the risk of identity theft.
BBB Military Line provides free resources to all branches of the U.S. military, including financial literacy information, scam alerts and access to BBB services such as complaint handling and dispute resolution.

GAITHERSBURG, MD (April 9, 2015) – Motorists will be driving for joy when they learn GasBuddy is projecting that this summer’s gasoline prices will bring the most affordable summer months since at least 2005.
While it may sound wild, GasBuddy projects that the summer driving season of 2015 (Memorial Day through Labor Day) will see the U.S. average price of gasoline come in around $2.35 per gal, a revision from its 2015 forecast it released last December. A recent Energy Information Administration projection pinned summer gasoline prices at $2.45/gal. Both numbers would represent the lowest summer prices in a decade.
“That means more Americans can afford to pack up and go enjoy a summer getaway because the cost of getting there will likely be the lowest since 2005,” said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy. “The latest data from the EIA showed the largest week-to-week buildup of crude oil (10.9 million barrels) since March 2001 and that underscores the downward pressure on fuel prices. So we’re confident in our projection; that the summer of 2015 will see the national average come in at a seasonal level we haven’t approached since 2005.”
“For consumers intent on saving the most no matter what part of the country they may be visiting, we suggest downloading GasBuddy’s free app because the average ‘spread’ (the gap between the highest 5% and lowest 5% of gas prices) by state still averages out to 45 cents daily,” said Gregg Laskoski, another senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy.
