Dollars & Sense: Housing crisis not over; oil prices surge

A roundup of today's CNNMoney news:

'Substantial risk' of 25% drop in home prices: National home prices fell 4.1% during the last three months of 2010, compared with 12 months earlier. And things may get a lot worse.

Should you pay off your house?: An increasing number of homeowners are wondering if it makes sense to hasten the day they can say goodbye to a big monthly expense while earning the equivalent of a decent, guaranteed return.

Oil prices surge 6% on Libya unrest: Worries about widespread supply disruptions are causing oil prices around the world to spike. And drivers are getting worried they may soon see $4 gas at the pump. But an industry group says the world has plenty of oil so there’s no need to panic.

Teachers under attack: Hundreds of thousands of school employees - teachers, as well as aides, school nurses, librarians, administrators and bus drivers - could lose their jobs in coming months. And a growing number of governors and lawmakers are taking aim at teachers' rights to collectively bargain. Meanwhile, Detroit is closing half its schools.

Motorla Atrix: Smart but needs work: If you’re holding out for the next cool phone, you might need to wait just a tad longer. Motorola's super-powered Android phone may be able to act as a netbook, but there are still bugs to work out.

  6. Quadaffi is the western government

    what Is wrong witH liberty for the most wealthy? Are they not equal? Do they not pay the most in taxes? Every american is more wealthy than most of the world. Should the world be liberated from the socialist oppressors? The u.s. Military loves union style benefits. Who will liberate those benefits?
