The Senate today passed a nearly four billion dollar tax increase.

EXPERTS SAY OTHER FACTORS IN HIGHER GAS PRICES - THE POLITICALLY UNSTABLE ENVIRONMENT IN VENEZUELA, AND CHINA'S BILLION PLUS POPULATION EMERGING AS A MAJOR FORCE IN GASOLINE DEMAND. John Fehny/American Petroleum Institute: In order to see gasoline prices fall dramatically you would have to see crude oil prices fall dramatically. THAT, ANALYSTS SAY, ISN'T LIKELY TO HAPPEN. OPEC HAS ANNOUNCED IT IS CUTTING CRUDE OIL PRODUCTION. "This year we'll probably be reaching record high gas prices or at least come pretty close to it." THE AVERAGE PRICE FOR A GALLON OF GASOLINE IS ABOUT A DOLLAR 65 THAT'S UP ALMOST A NICKEL SINCE MID JANUARY.
"The main reason for variation in gasoline prices is taxes, the type of gasoline you are using, for example some gasoline's like in California is much more expensive to produce."

It appears many agree.
Last year, the F-C-C received more than 240-thousand complaints about tv and radio programs.
What you may not realize is that you can automatically block sexual or violent programming from your tv.
It's called the V-Chip.

It works like this.
You use your remote to put in a password and then you can block shows based on the TV ratings system.
For example, if a show has a rating of TV-14 you can set it so no one under 14 can watch it.

The study backs that up.
It found that of all parents who bought a TV after January 2000, 53-percent are not even aware of the V-Chip feature.

Mariana Pasternak (pas-tur-knack) said Stewart told her ImClone's founder was "trying to sell his stock," and "isn't it great to have stockbrokers who tell you those things?" Now she says she doesn't know if the latter statement was made by Martha, or if that was thought in her mind. She did maintain that Stewart told her ImClone's founder was selling.
