March 28, 2012

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — A real-life Hamburglar has struck at a Maine McDonald's.
Police say a young man, seemingly inspired by the pattie purloining character once featured in McDonald's advertising campaigns, ran between a car and the takeout window at the Augusta restaurant Sunday night as an employee handed a bag of food to a driver.
A witness flagged down an officer leaving a nearby convenience store.
Lt. Christopher Massey, acting on a description of the hungry thief, found him in the parking lot of a rival fast food restaurant diving into a McDonald's bag.

PUMP PRICE JUMPS: $4.15 per gallon the new norm?

March 28, 2012

COLUMBIA CITY – Gas prices to the west of Whitley County jumped to $4.15 per gallon throughout Tuesday afternoon – and pump prices in the local area and Fort Wayne followed suit later.

Earlier Tuesday gasoline prices had fallen to $3.89 at many filling stations in Whitley County. As of Wednesday morning, there were but a handful of gas stations locally at sub-$4.15 per gallon.

The surge by 25 cents was in full force by Wednesday's commute, which leads motorists to question if $4.15 per gallon is the new norm at the pump.
