Find the cheapest gas in Hatboro and Horsham.
The national average for self-serve gas has increased for ten straight days to the highest price in more than a month, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report. The national average this for a gallon is $3.588, up 4.9 cents from last week, but still about 14 cents lower than a year ago. But according to the report, the year over year difference will likely continue to fade due to higher crude oil prices and refinery maintenance that decreases supply. In Bucks and Montgomery counties, gas prices went up 5 cents since last week, making the average price $3.530, that’s .3 cents less than a month ago and 25.9 lower than last year’s prices.

Children as young as 6 years old can swim, bike and run their way through the seventh annual 'School's Out Kids' Triathlon' next month in Horsham.
Do your kids have pent up energy to burn? The seventh annual School's Out Kids' Triathlon, which is slated for June 9 at Simmons Elementary School, just might be the perfect cure to quell pre-summertime boredom. In fact, even a first-grader can do it. The USA Triathlon sanctioned event is intended for kids ages 6 to 14. "Most kids can do the race without much training at all, and most children end up completing the race in about 20-30 minutes," Race Director Tracy Frary said, adding that the biking portion is "all on closed trails and it’s not very hilly." Bicycling, by far, accounts for the largest portion of the race. Depending upon the kid's age, participants would ride either 2.3 miles or 2.8 miles. Running, in comparison, accounts …

Even if you've been to The Wings of Freedom Museum 100 times and think you've seen it all, there's surely at least one sight you have not seen. The view beyond the fence. Until recently, the planes–and picnic area–outside of that metal fence at the rear of the Delaware Valley Historical Aircraft Association's volunteer-run aviation museum on Route 611 in Horsham was off limits for visitors. DVHAA last summer sought approval from the federal government to move the fence line to allow for greater public access. The federal government owns the property currently in use by DVHAA. The Navy has a lease with the Horsham Land Redevelopment Authority, which, in turn has a sublease with DVHAA. As part of the 862-acre redevelopment plan approved …
