BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) — Officials plan on Monday to release the names of the five people killed when a small plane crashed into an orchard in central California.

CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) — The price of gasoline nationwide keeps dropping. Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg says the average price of regular gas fell 4 cents in the past two weeks, to $2.06 per gallon. That's the lowest price since April 2009. But the price-tracking website GasBuddy.com says the average has dropped to $1.99 per gallon, the first time it's been below $2 since March of 2009. Prices have dropped because supplies are strong and demand hasn't been huge.
