McIntyre builds warchest as Republicans battle in primary

Monday, April 16th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-7th District) has passed the $1 million mark as he raises money for his reelection bid. Meanwhile his leading Republican challengers lag well behind in the money race.

McIntyre, who does not have a primary challenge, has $778,985.32 cash on hand after raising more than $160,000 in the first quarter of 2012.

On the Republican side, Ilario Pantano outraised David Rouzer in the first quarter. Pantano brought in more than $129,000 compared to more than $89,000 for Rouzer, including about $6,200 from Rouzer himself. Pantano has raised about $5,000 more than Rouzer for the entire election cycle, but Rouzer has about $100,000 more cash on hand, despite outspending his rival by about $60,000 in the first quarter.

One Stop Voting starts Thursday across the state. Election Day is May 8.

Gas Buddy: Gas Prices

Monday, April 16th, 2012

North Carolina (News Release)Average retail gasoline prices in North Carolina have fallen 2.0 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.88/g yesterday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 1.4 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.89/g, according to gasoline price website NorthCarolinaGasPrices.com.

Including the change in gas prices in North Carolina during the past week, prices yesterday were 13.6 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 10.3 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 9.1 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 9.3 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.

“The only thing I remain sure of with gasoline prices is that things will remain quite volatile the next four to six weeks,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “Spot prices, a leading factor in retail gasoline prices, continues to swing wildly from region to region. Last week we saw a refinery fire on the West Coast drive up spot prices nearly instantaneously, an event that could occur in virtually any area. It’s these events, the unforeseeable reaction, that gives me reason to say that prices may continue to swing upward and downward,” DeHaan said.

GasBuddy operates NorthCarolinaGasPrices.com and over 250 similar websites that track gasoline prices at over 140,000 gasoline stations in the United States and Canada. In addition, GasBuddy offers a free smartphone app which has been downloaded over 20 million times to help motorists find gasoline prices in their area.
