Congressmen Bill Owens & Richard Hanna voted in favor of the Water Resources Reform and Development Act which passed the House by a vote of 417-3. A bill Congressman Owens cosponsored was included in the act, which means for the first time, the Great Lakes waterways, including the Saint Lawrence Seaway will be designated as a single, unified navigation system, which will directly benefit New York by allowing the system's ports and waterways to bid on government funds for infrastructure projects as a single entity, instead of competing against each other for the same funds. The act also reauthorizes the National Dam Safety Program, which funds dam repairs, safety research and training, and the development of emergency action plans. The North Country region alone has 180 aging dams that are deemed high-hazard or significant-hazard, because their failure would significantly threaten life and property.

The price of gas has dropped locally in the last month, a trend that should continue through the end of the year except for the Thanksgiving and Christmas travel periods, according to Triple A Central Region General Manager Ed Welsh. The average price of gas in the Utica-Rome metro area this weekend was $3.64. That’s down a nickel over the last week and down 16 cents in a month, Welsh said. It’s still not as low as other areas in Central New York and Northern NY where it is $3.55 a gallon in Boonville and as low as $3.45 a gallon in Lowville. Walsh went on to say that there are two major factors driving the price down this time of year. First, demand drops after Labor Day. Second, refineries switch from summer to winter blend, which is cheaper to make. Mr. Walsh thinks the price will be a continuing trend for another few weeks. The prices this year are quite different from this time last year, when gas averaged $4.03 per gallon.
