Nationwide, gas prices were predicted to be lower this summer compared to the last three years, but that won't translate into savings at the pump this Memorial Day weekend, experts said. "Motorists this year are facing rising gas prices heading into the Memorial Day holiday," said Michael Green, a AAA spokesman, adding that Memorial Day 2013 would probably be the most expensive since 2011. In past years, prices have declined heading into early summer as oil refineries produced more gasoline to meet expected summer driving demand. This year, though, Midwest refineries …

it's almost time to 'spring forward.' Here's some planning help.
By now, most people in Holmdel and Hazlet have noticed that daylight is beginning a little earlier each morning. That means spring and Daylight Saving Time are near.

A Florida legislator even introduced the "Sunshine Protection Act…
