INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – New figures show that lower energy prices are making life more affordable for the average person, not just at the pump. Also, users of one brand of facial cream say it’s having an unsettling side effect.
The gas pump isn’t the only place consumers are seeing the benefits of low energy prices. Groceries and airfare are more affordable with cheaper fuel as the price of gas remains at a 12 year low for the month of March. But businesses say gas would have to remain low for years for some businesses, like restaurants, to lower prices.
Also in business headlines, some users of a night cream from skin care brand Dr. Brandt report that more than wrinkle-softening is happening when they us it. They report having incredibly vivid dreams, some of which are scary. Racked.com first reported on the strangeness, saying several online reviewers claimed to have strange dreams.
The company says Dr. Brandt Dream Night Cream was used by consumers once a day for 28 days, during the nighttime and no concerns or side effects were reported, but they are looking into the product again.
