Is it local?

Some folks wonder why some news appears in the paper, because it doesn’t seem to be local enough for their tastes. Well, some global things you don’t think much about have an impact on us at home. For example, sanctions in Venezuela and the impact of Hurricane Harvey have raised gas prices locally the last two weeks, according to GasBuddy.
