FROM Trilby Lundberg
Gas Prices Spike The West Coast, including California, is not connected to gasoline pipelines in the rest of the country. It has to be supplied by its own, separate system. With fewer refineries than there used to be, it's become vulnerable to problems it could have weathered before. But nobody's ever seen anything like the skyrocketing price increases of the past few days.
Gas Prices Jump 33 Cents in Two Weeks In the US gasoline market there's such a glut of supply that refiners are producing barely 80 percent of capacity. So why are prices shooting sky high? Trilby Lundberg is President of the Lundberg Survey, which checks pump prices all over the country.
After Syria strike a new Trump doctrine emerges The President who promised an end to entanglements in the Middle East and snuggled up to Vladimir Putin has now outraged Russia with surprise missile attacks on Syria. That's raised questions about who's running the White House? We hear a variety of answers.
Nuclear crisis on the Korean Peninsula slowly coming to a head North Korea did not conduct a nuclear test this weekend, but it did show apparent progress in developing a missile that that could strike the United States.

Trump's ethical conflicts pile up as transparency diminishes President Trump's refusal to reveal his income tax returns is just one example of a lack of transparency that could be hiding conflicts of interest. Other conflicts are already obvious from his appointments. And he's being sued for using his job to increase his profits.
Mixed Messages from US diplomats on the new hard line on Syria Since President Trump's surprise retaliation against Syria's use of chemical weapons, Bashar al-Assad has used the same airport to launch conventional attacks on his own people. It's not clear what the US, its allies — or Vladimir Putin's Russia -- plan to do now.
