scottb@herald-mail.com While some people are complaining about rising gas prices, Don Watson of Newfoundland is not one of them. "You guys are cheap," Watson said Tuesday of local gas prices. Watson, in the United States to attend a wedding, was pumping gas at the AC&T on Halfway Boulevard. Gas there was selling for $2 a gallon for regular, $2.08 for mid-grade and $2.16 for premium. Gasoline is much more expensive in Newfoundland at $1.10 per liter, he said.

By the time you read this, the price of regular gasoline will be close to or even above $4 per gallon all over the country. And there is no end in sight. Is the administration or any of your elected representatives in either party doing anything about bringing down the price? Or are they simply posturing, blaming OPEC, the oil companies and everyone else they can think of, when it really is their lack of political courage that is at fault? Let me restate the issues that I've been arguing for more than two years.

“The price of gas is determined by the price of a barrel of oil in the Middle East. The OPEC nations met in December 2010 and decided there would be no increase in the output of oil. They decided that $100-plus would be a fair price for a barrel. Now, according to Libya’s senior officials, with the unrest in the Middle East, OPEC gives the U.S. the finger. Only way prices can reduce is if the states lower the tax per gallon ... looking at a 10-cent-per-gallon increase.” — Berkeley Springs, W.Va.

julieg@herald-mail.com When it's time to fill his car's gas tank, Calvin Mahaney regularly checks gas prices at local stations, so he said he was surprised to see prices come down in recent weeks. Normally, gas prices spike heading into Memorial Day weekend because demand for gas increases as people hit the road for the long weekend, AAA Mid-Atlantic spokeswoman Myra Wieman said. Politics have contributed to an oversupply of crude oil so consumers are seeing a good effect on pump prices, Wieman said.

Cheap gas is back Falling oil prices worldwide have led to record low prices at gas pumps throughout the Tri-State area and across the country, and experts said long-term forecasts are good for motorists. Adjusted for inflation, gas prices are lower than they have been for a long time, according to analysts who track prices. "We are back to nearly pre-embargo prices when you consider inflation," said Henry R. Linden, director of the Energy and Power Center at the Illinois Institute of Technology.

andrear@herald-mail.com TRI-STATE - Colder temperatures this winter will mean higher heating bills for residents in the Tri-State area, industry experts say. Winter heating bills for residential customers could average $100 to $300 higher than last year. The increase is primarily because of the higher fuel usage anticipated during the area's coldest winter in several years, according to the federal Energy Information Administration's "Short-Term Energy Outlook. " The weather in November and the first part of December was colder than normal, boosting heating demand.
