As Congress adjourned on Wednesday for the summer, Republican Rep. David Dreier pushed fellow legislators to keep working on strategies to lower gasoline prices. Record-high oil prices in past weeks and a free-falling economy have complicated spending for many people living under the crunch of a financial system that some economists say is already in a recession. This week, the Automobile Assn. of America officials said gas prices dropped to $4.30 for regular unleaded. That figure is down more than 30 cents from record-high prices in June.

Jerry Lane I suppose the most popular topic of conversation these days is the price of gasoline. Everyone is wondering how high it's going to go and how fast it's going to get there. The oil companies are predicting $2 a gallon and, from past experience, that prediction means they have already decided that we'll be paying at least that much for a gallon of gasoline before too long and $3 a gallon doesn't sound farfetched now. A few things about this situation don't set right with me. I have always heard that an increase of a dollar a barrel in the price of crude oil in Saudi Arabia increases the price of gasoline by two cents a gallon in California.

This is in reply to Greg McKay's letter that appeared in the Glendale News-Press on April 1. I don't know how avocados and strawberries got mixed up with oil and gas prices. When the prices of these two items become outrageously high, I shop around for better prices or I do without them completely. I can find suitable substitutes for just about any food item. There is no edible commodity I absolutely must have. If I were in the market for a home, I would consider the asking price very carefully.

JERRY LANE "In this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." That's what Benjamin Franklin wrote back in 1789. Had he lived another 150 years, he may have added "and the rising price of gasoline." Beginning on Jan. 1 of this year, we set up a program on our computer to record what we are paying in "silent taxes" -- those taxes that the Internal Revenue Service allows us a standard deduction for on our income tax without exacting a precise accounting.

Glendale's water was well within statelimits for contaminants in 2011, but recent tests turned up a pollutant not detected in 2010, according to the city's water quality report released this week. “Everything's pretty consistent with what we've reported in the past,” said Dan Askenaizer, water quality manager for Glendale Water & Power. “Everything's in compliance.” But in 2011, Methyl Tertiary-butyl Ether, a chemical additive once used in gasoline, was found in north Glendale wells.
