After years of anticipation, crews have begun preparing for the construction of a new Wawa store on Street Road, between CVS Pharmacy and CollisionMax.
One of the most popular questions asked by readers since the launch of Warminster Patch in 2010 has been, "When are they going to build that new Wawa?" From the looks of things, the answer is "very soon." A temporary fence has been installed and construction vehicles are hard at work on preparing the site between the CVS Pharmacy and CollisionMax on Street Road for the coming of the popular convenience store/sandwich shop/gas station. A separate Beneficial Savings Bank building is also planned for the same parcel. The project had been delayed for years over site plans, traffic light issues, driveway access, reducing the nuisance for the nearby residential neighborhood, and, near the end, just getting the final paperwork filed.

This week, we look at reliable cars for about $5,000.
We've talked about big luxury, big car and big price tags. So we feel a little bad for recommending spending so much money all the time. So this week, we want to take a step back and go to the extreme by offering five options for used vehicles that are on the market for less than $5,000—because we know sometimes it really is "Mo' Money, Mo' Problems." 1. 2002 Kia Sportage —$4,990 Yes, it has 88,676 miles on it already, but you can't really beat that price for an SUV. Plus, it's got a 4-cylinder, 2-liter engine, power windows—perhaps not the most upgraded features, but, hey, as long as it gets you from point A to point B, right? Available at Bristol Auto Mall in Levittown. 2. 1999 Nissan Quest GXE — $4,495 This car, with 105,309 miles …

Find the cheapest gas in Warminster.
After months of a steady decline, gas prices saw it’s first uptick last week, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report. The national average this for a gallon of gas rose 1.7 cents from last week. In Bucks and Montgomery Counties, it went up less than 1 cent, .9, to be exact, making the average price $3.472, that’s 11.4 cents lower than a month ago and 38.3 less than last year’s prices. Since national gas prices peaked at the end of February, motorists nationwide have felt welcome relief at the pump in the form of falling prices, the report states; however, the recent broader increase in retail gas prices has been supported by higher global crude oil prices. Plus, news over the weekend of an Israeli airstrike in Syria raised fresh concerns of …

The Bucks County Officer of Consumer Protection advises car-owners to do their homework carefully when looking for a regular mechanic.
The following was provided by the Bucks County Office of Consumer Protection: Q. I recently graduated from college, have a good job, and was able to finally buy myself a new car. I want to make sure that I follow the maintenance schedule that was recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. The salesman at the dealership highly recommends that I use their service center for routine maintenance and repairs. Some of my friends and co-workers are recommending their mechanics, telling me that some dealership services are overpriced and even that some mechanics tend to take advantage of women, assuming that they are not as knowledgeable about cars. What do I need to know to make sure I take proper care of my new car without getting ripped off? B.G…
For this week's 5 Cars, we'll look at a variety of foreign cars for sale in the area.
While many drivers in this country are all about buying "American" as a show of patriotic pride, an act of loyalty to the construct or out of a belief that U.S.-made cars are the best available, a lot of others prefer cars from companies in countries outside the U.S. Some believe foreign cars generally have superior quality, performance and value—and still others just want the prestige factor of owning a foreign make. In the end, it really doesn't matter: A lot of ostensibly foreign vehicles are actually made in the U.S.A—and a lot of so-called "American" cars are constructed abroad.
