To help make sure you stay informed, each Sunday we'll revisit five stories from the previous week and capsulize them in this digest with the most recent updates.

Today's collection highlights some of the positive news events that happened this week. 

1. Gas Prices Begin to Drop

It's not much but even a drop of 2/10ths of a penny could bring hope to San Diego drivers. That's how much gas prices fell this week. Thursday's average, according to AAA, was $4.06 a gallon. Ouch! However, Consumer Bob has pulled together a map showing San Diego's cheapest gas stations to help us get through this. He suggests prices will probably start to drop a few pennies by early next week.

2. Tire Chalking in San Diego Could Stop After Federal Court Ruling

A federal appeals court ruled this week that a Michigan police department violated a motorist’s constitutional protection against search and seizure when they chalked her tires. Before you go celebrating, you'll want to see what NBC 7's Mari Payton explained to us about how this ruling may not be applicable here in Southern California.
