Gas prices in the Philadelphia region are falling — and if that trend continues, the price could soon dip below $3 a gallon at some stations.
GasBuddy is reporting prices as low as $3.05 this morning in Woodbury, Gloucester County. Gas can be found for $3.11 at other stations in South Jersey, and as low as $3.28 in the Pennsylvania suburbs and $3.29 in Northeast Philadelphia.
The average price for a gallon of regular gasoline in the Philadelphia area is $3.46 in Pennsylvania and $3.24 in New Jersey, according to AAA.

EAST NORRITON – Men who choose to undergo a robotic prostatectomy for treatment of prostate cancer have a much sunnier outlook than those who have their prostates removed by traditional surgery.
Young Kwak didn’t need to read that result of a study recently published in The Journal of Urology to know he was more than happy with his own robotic experience.
As the first patient at Einstein Medical Center Montgomery in East Norriton whose operation was assisted by the daVinci Surgery Robot, the Limerick resident said his goal was to get it done and move on with his life.
“Then I wouldn’t worry about it,” said Kwak, who underwent surgery on Jan. 18. “I liked the idea of a fast recovery without a big incision. I get really bored just sitting around. When they wheeled me into the operating room everyone was very excited and cheering. I have two colleagues at work with prostate cancer. One thinks he needs to go far away for treatment. I told him he didn’t have to do that. We’ve got the best right here. The new hospital is gorgeous. It looks and feels like a hotel.”

Hundreds of thousands of property owners in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery Counties are getting something they probably don’t want in the new year – higher real estate taxes.
Countywide increases, approved in December, affect the owners of all 382,304 real estate parcels in Chester and Delaware Counties. Some people are taking a double hit, as at least 27 towns in those counties also have increased taxes.
Bucks and Montgomery Counties kept their rates the same, but at least 28 municipalities raised real estate levies.
While the reasons vary, officials say the overarching reason is basic: Revenue is down; costs aren’t.
Money Magazine lists West Goshen Township as No. 25 among America’s 100 best small towns for 2011.
West Goshen Township is the highest-ranking Pennsylvania town named on the top 100 list, with Horsham Township (31st), Ardmore (45th) and West Norriton Township (59th) following behind… (McCandless Township in suburban Pittsburgh also made the list coming in at 46th but was not mentioned in this article).

Who the heck did you people hire as a security consultant?!?
In a misguided effort to locate missing computers, Lower Merion SD illegally captured photographs and screen shots from student laptops. Two students sued the district and the FBI was even involved!!! Student Blake Robbins testified he was photographed 400 times and a two-week period, even asleep in his bedroom. Can you say invasion of privacy!
Fortunately for Lower Merion, the FBI is not pursuing a criminal wiretap case against the district.
I would think a head or two would roll over this screw-up!
