WASHINGTON (AP) -- The big discounts certainly are a major draw, but holiday sales may also get a boost this year from the lower price of gasoline. AAA says the average price of gasoline has tumbled 49 cents from its peak this year to $3.29 a gallon, putting it on track for the lowest average since 2010. And history shows that when gas prices drop, consumers become more likely to splurge on dinners out. Impulse buys at the mall seem like less of a stretch. Many retail analysts have forecast a ho-hum sales gain of around 2 percent this year. Others predict a more optimistic increase of up to 3.9 percent. But some analysts say steadily cheaper gas could send holiday sales soaring above 5.4 percent. Cheaper gas might also help shore up consumers' fragile confidence in an economic recovery that's lumbered along for 4 1/2 years.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- Shoppers in many states will line up for deals hours after Thanksgiving dinner, but stores in a handful are barred by law from opening on the holiday. Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Maine have so-called "blue laws" that bar many big stores from opening Thursday. The laws prohibit most big box stores department stores and large supermarkets from opening. There have been some complaints over the years from companies that complain they're losing business to neighboring states or online stores, and recent pushes to change the laws in Maine and Massachusetts have gone nowhere. But many shoppers, workers and even retailers say they're more than happy with the status quo, which grants a one-day reprieve from work and holiday shopping.

HELENA, Mont. (AP) -- Gun advocates are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a lower court's ruling against state laws designed to buck federal gun rules. Earlier this year, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a district judge's decision against the 2009 Montana Firearms Freedom Act. The measure has since been passed in other pro-gun states. The laws attempt to declare that federal firearms regulations don't apply to guns kept in the state where they were manufactured. The Justice Department has argued successfully that the courts already have decided Congress can use its power to regulate interstate commerce. Gun advocates asked the Supreme Court on Monday to limit the reach of Congress to regulate guns. The Supreme Court is expected to decide next year whether to accept the request.

REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 19, 2013-- Please note that the

For any Nintendo fan, Nov. 22 is going to be one of the best days of
the year. On Friday, three new games in three extraordinary franchises

Nintendo 3DS family of systems and Mario Party: Island Tour, also for
the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, are all launching in stores and in
the Nintendo eShop. The games feature Nintendo characters and
experiences that can't be played anywhere else, and demonstrate how
Nintendo is bringing value and variety to everyone for the holidays.

release of three major games on one day," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo
of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "There is
something for everyone in this lineup. Super Mario 3D World is perfect

must-have for gamers and Mario Party: Island Tour is great for kids of
Super Mario 3D World is the newest game in the world-famous Super
Mario Bros. series. The Wii U game is the first 3D Mario platformer
that lets up to four players play together using Mario, Luigi,
Princess Peach and Toad. Each playable character has different
abilities. For example, Luigi can jump higher than the other
characters and Princess Peach can float in the air for a limited time.
Super Mario 3D World introduces players to beautiful HD graphics,
numerous breathtaking worlds and never-before-seen power-ups like the
cat transformation. In multiplayer mode, one player is able to play
using the Wii U GamePad while up to three others can use various
controllers like the Wii Remote or the Wii U Pro Controller. For more
information about Super Mario 3D World, visit
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is the successor to
fan-favorite Super NES game The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past,
which launched in 1992. Even though The Legend of Zelda: A Link
Between Worlds takes place in the same world as its classic
predecessor, it is a new adventure, filled with a new storyline and
new dungeons. In this Nintendo 3DS game, Link must journey between two
worlds, Hyrule and Lorule, using a mysterious power that lets him
become a drawing on walls. Link's ability to merge with walls allows
players to solve puzzles and explore dungeons in a new way. Players
are also able to buy or rent various items throughout the game,
allowing them to explore dungeons in any order they want, adding a new
level of freedom to the game play. For more information about The
Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, visit
A legendary Nintendo 3DS XL bundle will also launch on Nov. 22. The
bundle includes gorgeous gold-and-black Nintendo 3DS XL hardware with
the iconic Triforce on the exterior, as well as a download code for
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds at a suggested retail price
of $219.99. The system is gold-colored on one side and black on the
other, beautifully representing the two parallel worlds Link travels
between in the game. For more information and a list of retailers,
With Mario Party: Island Tour, players can take the party on the go!
The game is the next installment in the wildly fun Mario Party series,
and the first on Nintendo 3DS. Mario Party: Island Tour features
mini-games with more unique play styles than any other game in the
Mario Party series. Players will imitate voices of some of the most
iconic characters from the Super Mario Bros. universe using the
built-in microphone on the Nintendo 3DS system, tilt the system to
hang glide and even adjust reality with AR Card play. Mario Party:
Island Tour also features Download Play, which means up to four
Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 2DS owners can play together when in the same
room - even if only one person owns the game! For more information
about Mario Party: Island Tour, visit http://marioparty.com.
