Omar Kezbari, co-owner of a LukOil gas station on Route 73 in Mount Laurel, posted prices today, telling telling motorists he's charging an astounding $9.99 a gallon of gas today. Kezbari is taking part of a protest by some LukOil franchise stations in New Jersey and Pennsylvania against their parent company by posting ridiculously high prices for the day. "We're just trying to send a message to LukOil," an angered Kezbari said this morning. "Their cost is very high, and so our cost on the market is higher than anyone else at the retail level.

Delta Air Lines, the new owner of the Trainer refinery that is scheduled to reopen later this month, on Thursday became the third fuel producer in the Philadelphia area to announce plans to bring in crude oil by rail from the Bakken oil field in the upper Midwest. Edward Bastian, the airline's president, told an investor conference in New York that Delta plans to replace some imported oil at Trainer with domestic crude brought in by rail.

A Pennsylvania ex-con who once contended that he could cure AIDS by pumping ozone and oxygen into patients' posteriors, came up with another audacious swindle, federal prosecutors say: He told investors he controlled more than $1 billion worth of Texas oil. Richard J. Harley, of Shawnee-on-Delaware in the Pocono Mountains, contended he owned 10 million barrels of oil in Brown County, Texas, said he needed to borrow money to pump it out of the...

NEW YORK - Mixed economic data kept the stock market hovering near break-even Tuesday. One report on home prices looked encouraging, and another on consumer confidence was worrisome.

The report was the latest sign that the housing market has been gaining strength. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 21.68 points to close at 13,102.99. Hewlett-Packard led the Dow down.

MIAMI - Not a single drop of the massive BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico touched the landlocked city of Homestead, Fla., or the Keys peninsula to the south. But a Homestead businessman saw the April 2010 oil-rig explosion and subsequent environmental disaster as an opportunity to cash in, authorities say. Jean Mari Lindor filed about $15 million in BP damage claims for himself and others for wages purportedly lost because of the spill's economic effects on the region's tourism and fishing industries.

DEAR HARRY: I was browsing on my computer the other night when I came across an article that claimed that the U.S. has oil reserves in a belt from Montana to Texas that exceed those of the entire Middle East. The estimates run to a trillion barrels. This is supposed to be a long-held secret by an agreement among the major oil-drilling companies. The article seemed to be the real McCoy, with all kinds of backup information. It also urged readers to sell their oil-company stocks and get involved in buying long-term oil options.

You say gazpacho, I say salmorejo . . . On the hunt for gazpacho, we spotted something called salmorejo on the lunch menu at Garces Trading Company. Listed as "chilled tomato soup, with egg yolk and Serrano ham," it sounded a lot like the original item. Turns out, it's a richer, smoother version with a velvety texture, and a soft-pink blush.
