Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) has developed a vaccine to fight Ebola and will begin testing the drug on humans in January. If the vaccine is deemed safe by health authorities, the company could make 250,000 doses available by May. The vaccine will be the world’s first and is expected to perform well in human trials as earlier tests on monkeys suggested that the drug was both safe and effective.

European stocks are lower and Asian markets ended higher.

The national average price of gasoline is down eight-tenths of a cent at $3.086 per gallon. Tuesday at the local Gig Harbor Costco, regular gas was down another 6 cents to $2.90 a gallon. I am amazed.
