Mario Montoya - Longbow Research - Analyst
Longbow Research. Good morning, guys. Just real quickly, shifting gears a little bit, you guys talked about improving commodity outlook. Can you provide us with your COGS outlook for the rest of the year?
Al Drewes - Pepsi Bottling Group, Inc. - SVP & CFO
Our COGS guidance for the year for per case guidance is about 6%. I think that has been fairly consistent through the year -- during the course of the year that guidance may have come down a little bit, but that is basically where it is. One reason it's so high actually is because that transactional forex number that is on that bar chart that I showed you.
So just keep in mind that there is sort of underlying raw materials in COGS but there is also a big piece that is transactional forex in that number. And that presumably will go away next year as long as the currencies are relatively stable.
Mary Winn Settino - Pepsi Bottling Group, Inc. - VP, IR and Public Relations
Operator, we will move along to the next question, please.
