>>> gas prices hit a new four-month high. boy, the cost of a fill-up has gone up 33 days in a row yet. are we there yet?
>> everything seems to be going up at the moment. i don't know if you've seen the dow this morning. scaling new heights here and we neat a positive catalyst to push us sustainably high. back to the pump. if you feel like you're paying more, you are. the current average is $3.75 a gallon, nationwide average and 15 cents higher than a week and 44 cents higher than a month ago and we haven't gotten to the summer driving season. it has a lot to do with the number of refinery closings as opposed to just underlying crude prices but, boy, it hurts when you fill up.
>> no kidding. pardon the pun. a whopper of a public relations nightmare for burg king!
>> i will excuse you for that pun! burger king has not really been sold to mcdonald 's despite what it said on burger king 's twitter feed. now burger king , they have regained control of their hacked twitter page and they then tweeted out, interesting day here, burger king , but we are back. welcome to our new followers. hope you all stick around. someone, chris, as yet still unknown someone, apparently hacked their account hoposting obscene messages and changing their logo to mcdonald 's saying we just got sold to mcdonald 's. but you might remember at the beginning of this month, twitter actually said cyberattack may have stolen users names and passwords of about 250,000 users so maybe they were just one of the many that were hacked.
>> unbelievable. thank you, mandy. always good to see you from
