Gas prices expected to reach record highs soon

On Thursday, Palm Beach County was the state's only county at or above $4 a gallon. The average shot up six cents in the past week. Statewide, the average stood at $3.92. The peak is expected in late May or early June, and many motorists already have changed their driving habits. Prices could begin a retreat after that, experts say.

GasBuddy projects that prices in the Miami area will peak somewhere between $4.05 and $4.40 a gallon. Palm Beach County's average gas price typically runs about two cents higher than Miami's. [Source: Palm Beach Post]

  • Breaking News: Nova Southeastern University calls $200 million commitment from Patel Family 'transformational'

    Today, Nova Southeastern University (NSU) announces the largest philanthropic gift in its history from Tampa-area cardiologist Dr. Kiran C. Patel and his wife, pediatrician Dr. Pallavi Patel. The commitment from the Patel Family Foundation includes a $50 million gift and an additional $150 million for real estate and facilities. The money will be used to expand the university's programs in osteopathic medicine and health care sciences, and also to develop a new 27-acre campus for NSU in Clearwater, Fla. The Patels are renowned in Florida for their philanthropy, community service and entrepreneurship.

    “This gift and additional investment will enrich NSU’s ability to educate highly-qualified physicians and health care professionals who understand how the medical disciplines can and must work together. These future leaders will represent the cultural diversity of our region, our nation and our world so that they can better serve their patients and communities,” said NSU President Dr. George Hanbury.

    Their $50 million gift, one of the seven-largest to any Florida university in history, catapults NSU to more than 84% of its goal to raise $250 million by 2020 for its Realizing Potential philanthropic campaign.
