Nationwide, gas prices were predicted to be lower this summer compared to the last three years, but that won't translate into savings at the pump this Memorial Day weekend, experts said.

Read on for common misconceptions about the bees in your backyard.
Spring break for bees? Why, sure! Now that the days are getting warmer and nectar flow is at an all time high nation wide, honeybees are swarming. Misconceptions abound about swarming bees.
