VO-NAT Triple-A reports the nationwide


average for regular gasoline rose to a
record 3-07 a gallon today.

If it is any consolation, the
Roanoke region's average is 27 cents
less, and that is still well below the

Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in
2005.

in Virginia.

The buddahs of Bamiyan used to

destroyed by the Taliban.

The Buddhas were the two tallest
standing Buddahs in the world, and had
stood for over 15-thousand years.

Now archelogists are trying to

works of art.
