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.
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar.

Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11. But the President failed to provide what 27 other Alliance members have been waiting for: a re-commitment by America’s new leader to Article 5. Instead, they got a scolding.
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?

We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
