High Gas Prices Challenge U.S. Businesses 

The spike in gas prices in 2011 is forcing U.S. companies to re-evaluate how to conduct business and prompting workers to explore alternatives to their daily commutes.


In early May 2011, the average price of gasoline had risen above $4 per gallon in several states, including Alaska, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, Washington, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia.   


"Even though gas prices are getting higher across the country, that's not necessarily a bad thing," said Jay Hargis, director of learning and leadership development at Tufts Medical Center, adjunct professor of human resources at Suffolk University in Boston and Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) member. "Higher gas prices are going to trigger behavior change-whether it is for health reasons or for increasing flexibility in the workplace."  


The $4 mark is a significant psychological threshold for American commuters. The last time gas prices were this high was in the summer of 2008, right before the economy went into a tailspin, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.  


Retail surveys show that American motorists are starting to buy less fuel, yet government and energy analysts expect prices at the pump to keep climbing in the summer of 2011.

The allergic episodes can be mild, manifesting only as hives, skin redness or itching, but sometimes, an allergic reaction can be fatal.


Given that a fifth of the American population suffers from one form of allergy or another, what are the most common allergens that trigger allergic reactions in the United States? Here are ten.

Unemployment's Still Up - Where are the Qualified People?  


With the unemployment rate still sky-high, why are companies having such trouble filling their open jobs?


According to a recent survey from Manpower, 52% of employers say they're having difficulty filling "mission critical positions."


How come? The survey participants cited three main reasons:

  • candidates are looking for higher salaries than companies are willing to pay
  • candidates don't have the correct technical skills, and
  • applicants lack experience.
