julieg@herald-mail.com WASHINGTON COUNTY - Local drivers are unexpectedly paying less at the pumps for a gallon of gas heading into a busy traveling holiday weekend, according to AAA. Gasoline retailers usually raise prices heading into Thanksgiving week in anticipation of high demand, AAA Mid-Atlantic spokeswoman Myra Wieman said. Instead, prices have dropped over the last few weeks thanks to a large supply of gasoline, mild weather and the arrival of weapons inspectors in Iraq, Wieman said.

pepperb@herald-mail.com TRI-STATE - A potential war with Iraq, strikes in Venezuela and OPEC nations that are tightening the belt on crude oil supplies are among the factors leading to higher prices at gas pumps, and things may get worse, according to a AAA spokeswoman. "In a state of war, you never know," said Myra Wieman, spokeswoman for AAA Mid-Atlantic. Gas prices in Hagerstown increased about 10 cents in the last month. The $1.45 per gallon average price of self-service regular unleaded gasoline in Hagerstown Friday was higher than the $1.09 it was a year ago, but lower than in May 2001, when prices rose to $1.63, she said.

charlestown@herald-mail.com About 100 members of the 167th Airlift Wing based in Berkeley County, W.Va., were welcomed home Thursday following a 60-day mission in which they carried 818 tons of supplies and 1,174 people in support of the war in and around Afghanistan. Members of the local West Virginia Air National Guard base were praised for flying more than 1,600 hours with no aborted missions. Conducting that many flights without having to cancel any missions was impressive considering the temperatures that reached 130 degrees and the sandy conditions, which can play havoc with aircraft, officers said.

Is America getting over the hill? To the editor: We are overtaxed, over-regulated, overgoverned and our government is overstaffed. We are overspending, we the people are being overlooked, we are overproduced by China, we are being overtaken by foreign imports, we are overpriced by foreign oil and we are being over-run by Mexican drugs. I've come to the conclusion that our government needs overhauled. We are going into our third year of debating health care and by the time the Supreme Court rules, our No. 1 priority should be jobs and oil. The United States uses more than 20 million barrels of oil a day, which is 25 percent of the world's total, out of which we only produce 3 percent.
