A closely divided House has approved legislation to crack down on alleged price gouging by oil companies as prices at the pump continue to soar. A bill backed by House Democrats would give President Joe Biden authority to declare an energy emergency that would make it unlawful to increase gasoline and home energy fuel prices in an “excessive” or exploitative manner. The bill directs the Federal Trade Commission to punish companies that engage in price gouging. The vote Thursday comes as Interior Secretary Deb Haaland said she will release a long-delayed, five-year plan that allows Interior to conduct new offshore oil and gas lease sales.

A Native American student was forced to remove an eagle feather prior to her high school graduation ceremony in northeastern Oklahoma. Broken Arrow student Lena’ Black told the Tulsa World the feather was attached to her mortarboard and a security guard tried to forcibly remove before she could take it off. School Indian Education Coordinator Rich Pawpa said the confrontation was due to a miscommunication about the required protocols for approval of adding culturally significant items and that other Indigenous students wore regalia during the ceremony. Black and her mother say they have received an apology from the district.

A high-profile libel court battle between two British soccer spouses has concluded, with one lawyer accusing the claimant, Rebekah Vardy, of deliberately destroying key evidence that allegedly showed she leaked her opponent’s private social media posts to tabloid reporters. Vardy, the wife of Leicester City star Jamie Vardy, brought the defamation case against fellow soccer wife Coleen Rooney after an online spat between the two women spiralled. The falling-out grabbed national headlines in October 2019 when Rooney said she purposely posted fake stories on Instagram over several months to find out who was passing her private information to The Sun newspaper. The case is being closely watched in Britain and has been dubbed the “Wagatha Christie” trial.

Tiger Woods is starting to face an uphill battle early in the PGA Championship. Woods was 2-under par at Southern Hills until he ran into trouble off the tee and around the greens on multiple holes. That led to four bogeys in a five-hole stretch. That leaves him at 2 over. And he doesn't need a leaderboard to see where he stands. Rory McIlroy is playing alongside Woods. He made a 15-foot birdie putt on No. 2 to reach 5 under through 11 holes. He’s already seven shots ahead of Woods and Jordan Spieth, who also is in the feature group.

Syracuse University and JMA Wireless announced a 10-year partnership for naming rights of the university’s iconic indoor stadium.

The Boston Celtics were hoping to have at least one of their missing starters back for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against Miami on Thursday. Smart’s mid-foot sprain has improved to the point where the Celtics are expecting he can play. Horford remained in the NBA’s health and safety protocols with more test results pending. And White left Miami early because of the looming birth of a child.
