Cheaper crude and winter blends driving down Central Jersey gas prices
    The price of gas in Central Jersey is down for the second week in a row, and 11th time in the last 12 weeks.  Here, and nationally, the AAA says that's likely to continue thanks to cheaper prices for crude oil, and the re-arrival of winter blends back at the gas pumps.  Here are the Central Jersey averages, followed by the AAA national average for the week ending September 19th:       Regular - Central Jersey: $3.11, down 3-cents; National:  $3.38, down 6-cents.       Mid-grade - Central Jersey:  $3.40, down 5-cents; National:  $3.56, down 6-cents.       Premium - Central Jersey:  $3.55, down 5-cents; National:  $3.73, down 6-cents.       Local averages are calculated using the prices at ten gas stations in Edison, Franklin, New Brunswick, North Brunswick and South Brunswick.  The national average is calculated by using the AAA's fuel gauge report, which can be found here.

Perth Amboy officials cut ribbon on rebuilt Marina
Officials in Perth Amboy will cut the ribbon this morning on their rebuilt Marina, which was destroyed nearly two years ago by Superstorm Sandy.  Mayor Wilda Diaz says the reconstruction of the city's centerpiece has been along time coming, but says the Bay City wanted to make sure it got enough input from various sources.  "We set up a waterfront advisory committee that actually gave us their thoughts about what should go into the new marina," sayd Diaz.  "Also, we were very diligent when we paid very close attention to the new FEMA maps." After Friday morning's ribbon-cutting, the official grand opening is Saturday morning at 11 at 260B Front Street.

Lawmakers in Trenton advance bill for greater transparency at troubled Port Authority
New Jersey lawmakers advanced a bill designed to improve transparency and accountability at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.  It moves to the full Senate after a Senate committee approved the bill yesterday.  New Jersey Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg and state Senator Bob Gordon are prime sponsors of the bill, which grew from lane closings at the George Washington Bridge a year ago. The closures appear to have been politically motivated.  New York Assemblyman James Brennan has sponsored identical legislation that cleared both houses of that state's Legislature.  The Port Authority on Wednesday announced it is changing its rules to open up more access to public records.

Former Perth Amboy, Monroe municipal engineer gets 5 years in DWI crash that injured three
A judge has sentenced the former municipal engineer for Perth Amboy and Monroe to five years in prison for causing a high-speed crash while drunk that injured three people.  Ernie Feist pleaded guilty to assault by auto and drunken driving.  Feist apologized in court in New Brunswick yesterday and said he had made a bad decision.  Police say Feist was driving more than 90 mph after drinking for more than three hours in the afternoon in 2013 when his car struck an SUV head on. His car became airborne and hit a truck before bursting into flames.  His blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit.  The judge also ordered Feist to pay $33,000 in restitution to two of the victims.
