Jobs Lost In West Virginia in Only One Year .... The Bush Administration has in- sisted for the past year that its plan for the economy is working, but the jobs deficit in West Virginia is growing at an alarming rate According a report issued today by the Bureau to Labor Statistics (BLS), from March 2003 to March 2004 West Virginians lost 4,500 jobs or .06% of our total jobs, ranking West Virginia the third worst in the nation bringing West Virginia's total job loss under George W. Bush to 14,500 jobs. "These reports indicate what we' ve suspected all along, the Bush Admin- istration doesn't have a successful plan for job creation in West Virginia better." The new BLS statistics come on the heels of another report ranking Charleston and Parkersburg-Marietta in the top 100 cities most devastated by the Bush economy. With approxi- mately 4,800 private-sector jobs lost since Bush took office in January 2001, Charleston ranked 92 nd in per- centage of jobs lost in the report based on BLS data. The Parkersburg-Marietta area ranked 94th, losing 2.8 percent of the city's total jobs. The area went from a January 2001 high of 60,000 private-sector jobs to its current level of 58,300, according to BLS data. 2ND LIEUTENANT JENNIFER WOJTASZCZYK Wojtaszczyk Thursday, Apr. 29, 2004 -- The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder-- Page 3B Ill p Re o tt yh u dogaSwn?

So, slowing down can be both safe and fuel-efficient. Maintaining a constant speed also maximizes your car's performance. If road conditions permit, use your car's cruise control. Traveling at a fast speed in a low gear wastes gas. Accelerate a little as you approach a hill, rather than hitting the gas and switching gears once on the incline.
