Record high prices threaten Memorial Day plans / Bermuda Triangle Cruise Offers All Guests Full Refund If Ship Disappears / The Vault: 90's Music Record high prices threaten Memorial Day plans More than 39 million people are expected to hit the road this Memorial Day weekend, which is shaping up to be one of the most expensive on record, from the gas tank to the grill. While many Americans are eagerly anticipating their first Memorial Day in three years without federal COVID-19 restrictions, experts are cautioning consumers to be wary of a different threat: jacked up prices. "It’s too expensive. I would rather ride my bike than pay these prices," lamented Ryan Bubrosky, a Connecticut native paying $5.25 a gallon for a regular gasoline at his local station. It’s not just gas prices Americans have to worry about this weekend. The cost of a Memorial Day barbecue will also be among the highest in four decades. According to the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics data, the cost of hot dogs and hamburgers, food staples of Memorial Day weekend, are up 6.9% and 14.8%, respectively, from the previous year. Propane, which runs roughly 47 million outdoor grills in the United States, is up an additional 26.5% from 2021. "According to President Biden, it's all part of what call he calls a quote — ‘incredible transition.' "From the looks of Memorial Day prices, it is shaping up to be a long, hot summer. Taking trips, whether to vacation or to buy groceries, is now more expensive than ever. Joe Biden and his administration have no proposed solutions. o BBQing meat: house fire, car-b-q, Arizona car hood, lighter o Gas: hose, gas can and the night o Other food, go to the park or neighbors Bermuda Triangle Cruise Offers All Guests Full Refund If Ship Disappears Holidaymakers who have booked a cruise to the Bermuda Triangle are being told they’ll get a full refund if the ship disappears. Passengers are dropping up to £1,450 for a cabin on the two-day trip of a lifetime with the Norwegian Prima liner, which sets sail from New York to Bermuda next March. And in a light-hearted offer referencing the hotspot’s mysterious history, the cruise company has promised a full refund to passengers if the giant ship disappears in the triangle where hundreds of boats and planes are said to have vanished. Its website states: "Don't worry about disappearing on this Bermuda Triangle tour. The tour has a 100% return rate and your money will be refunded in the rare chance you disappear." The tour, which is popular with conspiracy theorists, includes a twilight Bermuda Triangle cruise on a glass bottom boat as well as talks and Q&As with several guest speakers including Nick Pope, who worked for the UK Ministry of Defence, and author Nick Redfern. Pope previously worked for the MoD's Airstaff 2a, which was dubbed the ' UFO desk' between 1991 and 1994. Other speakers include Peter Robbins, Micah Hanks and Jim Harold. Elsewhere, Australian scientist Karl Kruszelnicki, a fellow at Sydney University, claimed he solved the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle. Back in 2017, he insisted that supernatural forces aren’t at play, and the disappearance of planes and boats is down to bad weather and human error. Located between Miami, Puerto Rico and Bermuda, over the years many planes and ships are reported to have vanished without trace near the North Atlantic region, which covers 700,000 kilometres of ocean.
