国际油价上涨


It's difficult to tell this story without using the word "ouch," because so many of us are feeling the pain at the pump. If you or your parents have filled up the gas tank recently, you know why this headline is so big today. Gas prices are way up. And according to AAA, they've gone up every day for the past 13 days in a row. The total jump over that time: almost 34 cents!


说这个故事的时候很难不用“痛苦”这个词,因为许多人都在加油站感到过痛苦。如果你或者你的父母最近刚把油罐加满,你就知道为什么今天的标题很大了。天然气价格一路上涨。根据美国汽车协会,油价连续13天每天都在上涨。总共上涨了将近34美分。


Take a look at this here now. Yesterday, the national average for a gallon of regular was just over $3.50. And the state with the highest average overall? That would be California, at nearly $3.90. The state with the lowest average overall is Montana, at around $3.19.


看看这条消息。昨天,全国平均水平,一加仑油价就超过3.5美元。油价最高的是哪个州?加利福尼亚州,将近3.90美元。油价最低的是蒙大纳州,约3.19美元。


Now, you see gas prices are different from state to state because part of the price comes from local tax rates. The reason prices are up around the country is because the cost of crude oil -- the biggest part of gas prices -- is on the rise, too. One expert told CNN that he expects gas prices to keep going up, so not much relief in sight.


现在,你看到每个州跟每个州的天然气价格不同,因为一部分价格是跟地方税率挂钩的。价格上涨的原因是因为原油成本——天然气价格最大的部分——也在上涨。一位专家告诉CNN说,他预计天然气价格将继续上涨,没有太多的缓解迹象。

 

夏威夷火山喷发


This is not oil. It's lava, and it's shooting out of a volcano in Hawaii. Scientists say Kilauea was shooting lava as high as 80 feet into the air on Sunday. The state is no stranger to volcanic eruptions. That's how the Hawaiian Islands are believed to have been formed in the first place. The islands are the tops of a chain of volcanic mountains like this. Kilauea is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. Since 1952, it's erupted 34 times. And this lava you see here, it started flowing over the weekend: It's part of an ongoing eruption that started in 1983. It's happening in a remote area, so no people or homes are threatened.


这不是油。这是夏威夷的一座火山喷发的熔岩。科学家们说,周日,基拉韦厄火山喷射的熔岩高达80英尺。该地对火山爆发并不陌生。这也是人们认为夏威夷群岛是这样形成的。该群岛位于一连串火山山脉的顶峰。基拉韦厄火山是世界上最活跃的火山之一,自1952年以来已爆发了34次。你现在看到的熔岩,整个周末都在流动:自1983年以来,这座火山一直处于喷发状态。由于火山地处偏远,所以没有造成人员伤亡或者房屋倒塌。
