Eyewitness This: Possible spike in gas prices, Beyond Meat offers free food at restaurants, artificial intelligence at McDonald's

Gas prices spike?
What's going to happen to Southern California's already incredibly-high gas prices after another fire at the Phillips 66 refinery in Carson?

The latest blaze broke out late yesterday afternoon at the facility near Sepulveda Boulevard and Alameda Street and was knocked down pretty quickly by firefighters.

No one was injured in the incident, but drivers wondering whether it will lead to another a spike in gas prices. The answer to that question will be a little clearer as energy markets open this morning.
