shappell@herald-mail.com The national, state and Hagerstown-area records for highest gas prices were shattered in one fell swoop this week, according to a spokesman for AAA Mid-Atlantic.

According to statistics released by AAA Mid-Atlantic Wednesday, the price for self-serve, regular unleaded gasoline was at $1.74 nationally and $1.72 statewide and in the Hagerstown area.

shappell@herald-mail.com The State Highway Administration and AAA Mid-Atlantic are urging motorists to slow down this Halloween and parents to teach their children about pedestrian safety to avoid collision during trick-or-treat hours. As an extra precaution, the State Highway Administration is allowing people to borrow reflective vests, without cost, to place over children's costumes. State Highway Administration spokeswoman Adrienne Cousler said Washington County residents will be able to pick up the vests between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Wednesday through Friday, at its area site - 18320 Col. Henry K. Douglas Drive, near Interstate 70 and Md. 65. "We ask that, since they're borrowed out, people bring them back in a timely manner," Cousler said.

Derek Hays of Hagerstown sometimes travels to the beach for Memorial Day weekend but said he plans to stay home and have a barbecue with his family this year. “Money's a little tight, gas is a little tight, so it just doesn't pay to drive down there for two days and pay the rates that they're charging for the hotels,” said Hays, 26. “It just isn't worth it.” Despite the improved economy and lower gas prices compared to last year, fewer U.S. residents and fewer Marylanders are expected to travel Memorial Day this year than last year, according to AAA Mid-Atlantic.

tarar@herald-mail.com Gas prices in the Tri-State area climbed by six cents or more this week, with some grades topping $2 per gallon. Relief from the increasing prices isn't likely to occur until the fall - if then - AAA Mid-Atlantic spokeswoman Amanda Knittle said Thursday. "It's anyone's guess as to where prices will stop. All bets are that they will continue to rise until fall," Knittle said. Knittle said the main reason for the recent spike in gas prices was that the cost of crude oil hit a 13-year high this week, at more than $39 per barrel.

shappell@herald-mail.com Motorists filling their gas tanks in the area likely are finding their wallets a bit lighter than they might have a month ago, as prices have jumped locally by about 16 cents per gallon since last month. A spokesman for AAA Mid-Atlantic said January is just the beginning of what is expected to be a very unstable year for gas prices. The price per gallon for self-serve, unleaded gasoline increased between Dec. 29, 2003, and Jan. 29 by 16 cents both nationally and in Maryland, and by 17 cents in Hagerstown, according to a AAA Mid-Atlantic news release.

Fort Ritchie has potential To the editor: While I must agree that closing the U.S. military bases will save the government money in the log run, the closure of Fort Ritchie must have been not well thought out years back. Here in Cascade lies a defensive strategic gem beckoning for some more attention. It (Fort Ritchie) rests square between Camp David in Thurmont, the Pentagon's underground backup defense site and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, located near Emmitsburg.

WASHINGTON COUNTY - Just in time for Labor Day weekend getaways, gas prices in Maryland have reached their lowest point in almost five months, according to AAA Mid-Atlantic. Statewide, the average price for a gallon of self-serve regular was $2.66 on Thursday, 21 cents less than last year. In Hagerstown, the average was $2.71; nationally, it was $2.77. But despite the lower gas prices, the number of Americans traveling this holiday weekend should be about the same as last year, AAA predicted.

WASHINGTON COUNTY - Motorists should be on the lookout for deer as the weather turns cold and the animals' thoughts turn to mating, officials said. "They have one thing on the mind, and it is not oncoming traffic," Washington County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Daniel Faith said Sunday. According to AAA Mid-Atlantic, about 1.5 million crashes involving deer occur every year. About 155 people die in those accidents. Last year, deer were involved in 2,341 crashes in Pennsylvania that killed nine people.
