According to a new survey, gas prices rose more than 6.36 cents over the past 2 weeks to a nationwide average of $1.91 per gallon of self-serve regular.

For a record 7th year in a row, Anheuser-Busch has won USA Today's Ad Meter consumer ranking of the top Super Bowl ads. This year's winner featured a guy tossing a six-pack of Bud Light out of a plane to encourage a skydiver who was refusing to jump. The pilot runs between them and jumps after the beer. It scored a 8.65, and was followed the cell phone yakker that was mistaken for a robber (8.06), and the ad featuring American troops getting standing ovation at airport (7.94).
