Published on

    Turning Around Urban Decline
    We've all seen the photos of Detroit when it was at its lowest point after the 2008 recession: street after street of vacant lots and abandoned homes-a city in visible decline. It might have been the poster child for urban blight, but those problems are more common than one would think in poor neighborhoods in many medium-sized cities around the country.

    Why the Price of Oil Is Rising
    It's hard not to notice rising gas prices as we head to the pumps-and they have indeed been climbing. A year ago, a gallon cost about $2.40; now it's closer to $3. The price of oil is at the root of that rise, of course, going from about $45 a barrel to around $70 in the same time period.
