The average price is 9.9 cents more than one week ago, 57.2 cents higher than one month ago and 20.8 cents greater than one year ago.

Orange County

The Orange County average price rose today for the 29th consecutive day, increasing three-tenths of a cent to $4.309, the highest amount since Oct. 25.

The Orange County average price has risen 56.1 cents during the streak of increases, the longest since at least 2009.

    EXCLUSIVE -- LL Cool J grew and evolved from a hip hop artist out of Hollis, Queens, to a Hollywood TV and movie star. But he always stayed true to hip hop culture. We'd see him backstage at concerts just hanging out with us, so when I heard he was back in New York for the summer I had to find out why. I tracked him down to a Midtown Manhattan recording studio for this exclusive interview.
