December 13, 2010, 6:32 PM

Evening Business Brief
Stocks finished the day mixed, with the blue chip averages in positive territory. The Dow gained 18 to 11,429.  The S&P was up slightly, while the Nasdaq lost nearly 13 points.
  • Legislation to avert a Jan. 1 increase in income tax rates has gained 60 votes in the Senate, the level needed to advance toward a final vote. The measure could be passed and sent to the House as early as tomorrow.
  • Today is expected to be the busiest day in FedEx history, with nearly 16 million packages moving on its conveyer belts, trucks and planes. That's up 13 percent from more than 14 million on the busiest day last year, double what the company handles on a normal day.
  • With the continuing rise in the price of crude oil, there's more upward pressure on gasoline prices. Benchmark crude rose 82 cents to settle at $88.61 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
  • Walgreen says a list of customers' e-mail addresses has been breached, and spam may have been sent out directing customers to enter personal data into outside Web sites.  Walgreen says no other personal information was at risk.
