While You Were Sleeping…

Here are some political international and business new stories that took place or developed while you were sleeping:

The price of a regular gallon gas moved up overnight to a national average of $3.750. Considering that Isaac is on the path to hit key onshore and offshore oil production plants in addition to many refineries, the price of gas is expected to spike in coming days. CNBC reports that “Weather Insight, an arm of Thomson Reuters, expects that 87% of US off-sore oil capacity and 72% of natural gas output” will be closed due to Isaac.

This is good news for Mitt Romney: The Washington Post poll among Registered Voters has him leading the President 47% to 46%. Again, this is among registered voters. If you would flip it into Likely Voters, Romney’s lead increases to two points. Some recent polling that released both numbers, showed that the difference between RV and LV, is a net gain of two to seven points for Romney. So… Romney is now leading Obama by at least three points among people who actually want to vote!
