This morning's roundup of local business stuff with Steve Julian (89.3 FM at 6:55 and 9:55) covered the decline in L.A.-area auto sales, the unlikely dropoff in gasoline prices and the high cost of the gubernatorial campaign. It seems impossible, but next week will mark the two-year anniversary of my weekly gabfests with Steve. Aside from having to get up every Tuesday morning at a ridiculous hour, it continues to be a blast. Thanks to all the kind words from faithful KPCC listeners. This morning's audio should be available later in the day.
