What is the most common color of car?

The most common car color for the 2012 model year -- the color of 22 percent of all vehicles produced that year -- is white, according to automotive paint supplier PPG Industries Inc. Twenty percent of cars are painted silver, and 19 percent are black. Silver was the top color in 2011. White, once popular in the 1980s, is making a comeback in the 21st century, in part because of the popularity of products from Apple computers.

Who has the most expensive gas in America?

The highest average price being charged for a gallon of regular gas on Tuesday was $4.67 in California, according to AAA's Daily Fuel Gauge Report. That's a record not just for the state but for the country, AAA said. The highest average price was $4.75 in San Luis Obispo. San Diego averaged $4.72 a gallon, and Los Angeles followed at $4.71.

Which party has more voters registered?

Democrats have an edge over Republicans in the number of voters they've registered in five of six swing states, though that edge is smaller than it was four years ago when President Obama was swept into office, the New York Times reports. Democrats have more registered voters in Florida, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Iowa and Nevada. Republicans have an edge in Colorado. Some states, including battleground Virginia, don't require voters to register by party so it's unclear which party has an advantage there.
