  • Members of both parties say congressional bargainers appear to be near an agreement to head off a July 1 doubling of interest rates on federal loans affecting more than 7 million college students. Key to the prospective agreement is an answer to the question of how to pay for the measure's $6 billion cost.
  • Crude oil prices settled higher. The near-month contract for the benchmark grade rose $1.56, closing at $79.76 a barrel.
  • Facebook has become the latest company to agree to give people advance warning that its mobile applications can pull personal information from mobile phones and tablet computers.
