From The Aegis of Thursday, April 26, 1962: A disturbingly large leak of propane gas had Bel Air on edge 50 years ago this week. The news staff quoted a firefighter in the county seat saying: "Half the town was sitting on a bomb, but nobody lit the fuse!" A tank truck parked at Dallam Place was undergoing a repair to a faulty gasket when a leak was sprung and about 100 gallons of liquefied gas was sprayed into the air. Fire and ambulance crews responded to the scene, houses were evacuated and the area was secured for about three hours to allow the gas to dissipate.

"One voice! One community!" they chanted. And later, "Enough is enough!" As rush hour traffic passed by, dozens of people joined hands at a gas station near Fort Meade on Monday to remember a man killed this month while trying to earn a living. Rajinder Kumar, 49, was fatally shot Aug. 7 during his overnight shift at the Exxon station at Ridge Road and Route 175 in Hanover. A man came into the store, shot the clerk and took an undetermined sum of money, according to police. Kumar, who colleagues said sent his earnings to his wife and children in India, was Muslim; last week the Anne Arundel County Muslim Council chipped in money with the FBI and Metro Crime Stoppers to offer an overall $27,000 reward in the case.

Maryland's second-highest court upheld Friday a judge's ruling that the Cove Point gas facility can be converted to be used for exports, siding with the company that owns the plant and against an environmental group. The Sierra Club argued in court that a 2005 agreement between the organization and the plant's owner, Dominion, prevents it from being used as a base for sending liquefied natural gas abroad. Dominion disagreed, arguing that while the agreement did not explicitly mention exports, it did not preclude them.

ARLINGTON, VA. -- So it has come to this: A group of Senate Republicans has proposed $100 rebates to low-income people to ease their "pain at the gas pump." They also are entertaining the possibility of higher taxes on oil industry profits, as if government does a better job of spending money than private industry. Have they forgotten the last time government imposed a "windfall profits tax," from 1980 to 1988? Oil production fell (but demand grew) as "big oil" had less incentive to explore.

THE QUESTION most asked of gas utility companies this year is: "Why is my gas bill so much higher than last year?" The answer isn't simple. This winter, Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. and other utilities nationwide faced an unusual set of challenges that directly affected what we all pay for natural gas. But in the final analysis, it all comes down to limited supply and increasing demand. The early part of the winter was much colder than a year ago, a reality that has made a bad situation worse.
