Experts saying that gas prices have jumped 18 cents over the past
two weeks- the biggest jump of the year.
The average for regular unleaded in the Triad…$3.59 ($3.61 Statewide…)  The reasons:  Higher crude oil prices, higher corn-based ethanol prices, plus a few refinery and pipeline problems around the country.  BTW: The U.S. drought is pushing up prices for all corn-based products. http://www.cnn.com/2012/08/12/travel/gas-prices/index.html     GasBuddy.com    http://www.winstonsalemgasprices.com/

Protest vandalism at a Chick-Fil-A in Frederick, Maryland. The vandalism occurred over the weekend when same-sex marriage supporters decorated
the store with a gay pride flag and glued pro ‘same-sex marriage’ stickers to
the windows of the restaurant.  Earlier this month, a 30-year-old man of West Hollywood, Calif., was arrested for reportedly spray painting “tastes like hate” on the side of a Chick-fil-A in Torrance, Calif.  These aggressive acts of protest come after Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy confirmed in early July that, according to his Christian faith, he firmly supports traditional marriage.
