The issue for the court was whether the scooter qualifies as a vehicle under state law.

The court says Lyon, who's disabled, must follow the ``rules of the road.''

The volunteers will agree to pay 1.5 cents for each mile traveled on public roads within Oregon. The program will test whether the state can raise more revenue to pay for road and bridge projects at a time when gasoline tax revenues are declining.

The average national price of a regular gallon of gasoline has jumped 22 cents in the past three weeks to $2.80.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said Sunday that higher crude prices caused by a weaker U.S. dollar and strong gasoline demand drove the increase.

However, she says the price was 93 cents lower than a year ago.

The average national price for midgrade was $3.00 and premium was $3.16. Diesel was $2.97.

In a survey of cities in the Lower 48 states, Los Angeles had the highest-priced gasoline at $3.95 a gallon. Baton Rouge, Louisiana, had the lowest at $2.32.

The average price in California was up 53 cents to $3.76 a gallon.

Lundberg says gasoline price hikes will likely slow or stop because of an expected increase in supplies.


The ladies of ``Pitch Perfect 2'' hit all the right notes opening weekend, amassing a $70.3 million debut, according to Rentrak estimates Sunday.

The Elizabeth Banks-directed sequel to the 2012 sleeper hit and video-on-demand phenomenon cost Universal Pictures only $29 million to produce and was expected to open in the $50 million range. The first film, for comparison, grossed only $65 million domestically across its entire run.

George Miller's critically acclaimed ``Mad Max: Fury Road'' landed a distant second in its debut weekend with a solid and expected $44.4 million from 3,702 locations. The high-octane, post-apocalyptic film cost a reported $150 million to make and stars Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy.

Holdovers ``Avengers: Age of Ultron,'' `'Hot Pursuit'' and ``Furious 7'' claimed the rest of the spots in the top five.

Witness statements say the sheriff's deputy shot in the head in a gas station lot was ambushed by a man carrying a strange package who appeared out of the adjoining woods.

Police reports following the shooting of Berkeley County Sheriff's Lt. Will Rogers late Thursday say the law officer was shot in the back of the head, but was conscious and alert when help arrived.

One witness and surveillance video identified the gunman as wearing a mask, dark pants and a white, long-sleeved shirt. He was carrying a red bag.

A witness told authorities the shooter appeared from the woods next to the Moncks Corner gas station where Rogers had stopped and fired three bullets from a silver revolver as the deputy stood outside his vehicle.



Federal authorities say they are sending $3 million in checks to consumers who bought a cactus-based fruit drink from TriVita based on bogus health claims. The Federal Trade Commission settled charges against Trivita in July alleging that the company's informercials and advertisements deceived customers about the benefits of its drink, Nopalea. The agency says it is now mailing 500,000 checks to consumers. The check amounts vary based on how much a customer spent on the company's product
