Gaynor, 12/23/2t Deputy Choral ;ter Musica Director in Concerts on December 1 e The average price in West Vir- ginia for a gallon of regular un- leaded self-serve gasoline re- mained steady for the second straight week. However, prices for self-serve mid- and premium- grades increased, while full service costs decreased. The disparate prices are reflective of the volatile market for fuel prices over the last several weeks, in response to pro- duction cutbacks by OPEC, as well as concern over a food-for-oil agree- ment with Iraq. According to the AAA Fuel Gauge survey, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded self- serve gasoline in West Virginia is $1.341. Fuel Gauge survey prices do not include the areas in and around Charleston and Beckley, where gasoline prices are gener- ally higher. This week's average prices: Full Self Serve Serve Regular unleaded $1.506 $1.341 Mid-grade 1.599 1.436 Premiura 1.668 1.530 Average prices during the week of De cember 1, 1999: Regular unleaded 1.509 1.341 Mid-grade 1.601 1.431 Premium i.668 1.525 Average prices last year during the week of December 15, 1998: Regular unleaded 1.2710.970 Mid-grade 1.3641.078 Premium 1.4261.167 AAA West Penn/West Virginia/ South Central Ohio is a not-for- profit association with 54 local of. rices in Pennsylvania, West Vir- ginia and Ohio, Winchester Musica Viva Chamber Choir, a semiprofessional choral ensemble from Winchester, Va led by musical director Dr. Ken Nafziger, professor at Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonsburg, Va per- formed two 40-minute concert assembly programs, featuring American Christmas music of many different traditions from Colonial times up to the present, on Friday, December 3 at Harpers Ferry Junior High School.
