It's a very slow start to the week. Just a couple things for you this morning.
A- South Florida Business Journal: Yes, we've noticed.
South Florida motorists are paying more for a gallon of gas than they ever have in the month of February.B- CBS4: Shorter Jeff Loria..."We're making good business decisions no matter what everyone thinks, so you better start coming to games and getting behind us."
Fuel prices in the tri-county area increased 4 cents to 7 cents last week, reaching $3.96 in West Palm Beach for a gallon of regular gas, $3.95 in Fort Lauderdale and $3.94 in Miami, according to the AAA Fuel Gauge report.
"Unfortunately, it doesn't look like there will be much relief at the pump in the next couple of weeks," AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman Jessica Brady said in a statement.
“The simple fact is that we don’t have unlimited funds, nor does any baseball team or business. Fans didn’t turn out last season as much as we’d like, even with the high-profile players the columnists decry us having traded,” states the ad. “Is it sound business sense to witness an expensive roster with a terrible record and sit idly by doing nothing? No. I can and will invest in building a winner, but last season wasn’t sustainable and we needed to start from scratch quickly to build this team from the ground up.”C- NBC Miami: Andrew Zimmern says food trucks are here to stay and it's not because he has a food truck.
Andrew Zimmern says the economic downturn that began in 2007 fueled the boom of food trucks – and their popularity proves they’re here to stay.
Zimmern, who hosted the Trucks on Midtown’s Tracks rally Sunday on the final day of the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, went way back as he explained the phenomenon.
“Mobile food has been around since before the time of Christ. And people forget that while it hasn’t been in a 8- or 16- or 4-wheel form, mobile food is and always will be the place that the entrepreneur can get into this business the fastest,” Zimmern told NBC 6 South Florida.
The popularity of food trucks in recent years shows, he said, that “this is not a trend.”
