NEW YORK (AP) — A senior Obama administration official says no one in the U.S. government is aware of a plot for an attack on subway systems in the U.S. and Paris.

GALVESTON, Texas (AP) — Authorities believe a fugitive who's charged with abducting a University of Virginia student may have been trying to flee to Mexico. That's according to a person familiar with the search for the missing student, Hannah Graham.

It's about a seven-hour drive from the Mexican border.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Missouri police chief whose officer fatally shot an unarmed 18-year-old last month has released a video apologizing to the family, saying Michael Brown's body remained on the street for too long after he was killed. The video featuring Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson was released by a public relations agency today, the same day Brown's parents were in Washington with civil rights leaders. Their attorney says the family hadn't heard about the video but would review it.

NEW YORK (AP) — The price of a gallon of gasoline may soon start with a "2'' across much the country. Gasoline prices typically decline in autumn. This year they're getting a big push lower from falling global oil prices. By the end of the year, up to 30 states could have an average gasoline price of under $3 a gallon, according to a forecast from GasBuddy.com. Already the average in Springfield, Missouri is below $3. Several other cities are on the brink.

MILAN (AP) — City officials in Venice will be closing a walkway near the picturesque Grand Canal for at least two hours on Monday. It's part of an effort to keep crowds away from George Clooney's wedding to human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin (AH'-muhl ah-luh-muh-DEEN'). The walkways are used to access the Cavalli Palace. It's used for civil marriage ceremonies, and has rooms overlooking the Grand Canal and the famed Rialto Bridge.
