>>> a break in at the home of the late steve jobs . mandi drury is here.
>> would you believe in an ironic twist of fate through his itunes account. he used the stolen devices to connect it after the break in on july 17th . so apple investigators were able to identify him using an i.p. address . he confessed and wrote an apology letter to jobs' widow. but it was so easy for him to get in. the home was being renovated. he found the spare key and went inside. he just grabbed iphones, ipads, then found jobs' wallet. but he took his driver's license and police also said he snatched about $60,000 worth of tiffany jewelry and champagne and also a blender. it's an amazing story.
>> famously, steve jobs house is not in a secluded community so very accessible. another thing you're watching for us, this is something we thought we'd end the summer with, low gas prices .
>> it's quite amazing. people are now saying it could be the most expensive ever in terms of a year to fill up. so the current national average is $3.71 a gallon. that's up 31 cents since mid-july. and although prices should have peaked by now, prices are likely to continue climbing through august and people suggest little relief after labor day . 2012 's average has become $3.61 a gallon versus last year which was $3.51. last year was the most expensive ever. that's kind of what people say is the threshold in terms of people pulling back on consumer spending .
>> mandy drury, always great to
