Gas Prices Rising; Child's Medical Treatment Case; Economic Impact Of Early Childhood Education
Memorial Day is around the corner and gas prices are around the corner from three bucks a gallon and headed there fast. The average price in Cleveland, for example, shot up 17 cents in a week to $2.84. What's driving up the prices? We discuss the factors that analysts believe will drive up the price of a barrell of crude oil, and ultimately a gallon of gas. Plus, details on the state's effort to compel a local child's parents to follow doctor's orders, and not their own natural remedies, to treat their child's brain tumor. Plus, an economist's case for investing in early childhood education.
