Max Armstrong talks about gas taxes, China's pork industry, a text hotline for young people and help for a family via GoFundMe.

A USA Today report talks about the tax impact on gas prices. Michigan and Indiana are among the top 10 states for gas taxes. Local taxes weren't included.

Livestock analysts continue to watch China's pork industry. Many believe U.S. demand will surge soon.

Child Help, a non-profit organization, recently launched a text line, thinking young people might be more likely to report abuse that way.

A GoFundMe page was started for a woman and her children who passed away in Nebraska.
