California gas prices surge to five-year high; what's causing the spike?

Today 01:30 GMT

While California prices are the highest in the nation, Alabama had the lowest prices as of Thursday, at about $2.50 per gallon.

“California’s unique gasoline standard means replacements for the shortfall in production aren’t easily found and … explains why drivers there have seen gasoline prices spike nearly 68 cents a gallon in just a month,” McTeague told FOX Business. Drivers in Los Angeles have seen prices rise 71 cents per gallon in a month, while the increase was 72 cents in San Francisco.

Where is Scotland’s highest village?

Thursday 09:54 GMT

Perhaps surprisingly, the highest village in Scotland is not in the Highlands but has officially been Wanlockhead in southern Scotland and it has got a sign to prove it.

If you carry on along the road that winds through the village and over the brow of the hill, you will reach another village, Leadhills. Cameron Halfpenny has a copy of The Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland from 1893 that states Leadhills is the highest village in Scotland.

Landlords Look Beyond London for Lower Costs, Better Yields

Tuesday 18:10 GMT

The tax has sped up an ongoing trend in which landlords living in the capital steadily shifted their rental portfolios outside of the city, hunting for better rental yields and lower costs.
