Well I was reading A Look at PHP 5 at developer.com and I am now convinced that PHP 5 will be awesome programming tool. Being able to throw (and catch) exceptions so that errors are more meaningful and are easier to debug is something that I think the PHP community has been waiting a long time for.
Also, the SQLite feature seems pretty cool. Not having to use MySQL or another database will be a big plus for those who just want something simple to hold their data.
In other news, CNN Money has a good article on the current gas prices and the expected pricing for the future. It also has a little insight into why the prices are rising (OPEC is expected to slow its production and there are worries about the inventory of crude oil). Anyway, for anyone wondering, that is a good read.
