Cars are a defining aspect of the American landscape in John Petro's exhibit "Parked Outside the Door" at the Bernice Kish Gallery at Slayton House. Although people are rarely seen in these color photographs, cars appear in almost every shot. A typical photo features a single car parked near a single house, as if to emphasize that ours is a mobile culture. Indeed, there's even a shot depicting a red truck parked next to a mobile home in Cloverlick, W.Va. Ironically, though, Petro often takes photos of junked old cars that aren't going anywhere.

WITH GAS prices here surging above two bucks a gallon, this is fast becoming the season of the petro-stalkers. You know what I'm talking about here. The petro-stalkers are those motorists who are driven by an uncontrollable urge to always find the cheapest gas prices. All day long, wherever their driving takes them, their beady little eyes are busy scanning the signboards of every gas station they pass. Over time, they develop an encyclopedic knowledge of gas price fluctuations, and are able to rattle off the current prices for regular, mid-grade and premium fuels at every station within a 20-mile radius.

Oakland Mills senior Steve Petro and Dulaney junior Meghan White took different paths to the finish line at yesterday afternoon's Westminster Invitational.Petro had built enough of a lead early on that when he temporarily missed a turn down the stretch of the course at Western Maryland College it didn't matter.White's effort was like a flashback to last year when she came from behind in the final 20 yards to win the race. This year, she caught North Harford's Megan McNew down the final hill to capture her third straight Westminster Invitational and lead the Lions (62 points)

The Petro brothers carried on in the winner's circle as if they were the Smothers brothers. After Nick Petro rode the Michael Petro-trained Ironton to victory in the $75,000 Northern Dancer Stakes yesterday at Laurel Park, Nick said the brothers weren't always this jovial. Being brothers who ride to and from races together isn't always a kick. "When I screw up he's got an hour to yell at me," Nick said. "I even get yelled at in the morning. It's like being married twice." Nick, 40, gallops horses for Michael, 38, in the morning and then rides them in the afternoon.

BEIJING -- The state-controlled firm PetroChina toppled Exxon Mobil Corp. from its perch yesterday as the world's most highly valued company as eager Chinese investors briefly pushed its value to $1.1 trillion. Analysts said the landmark event underscored China's growth and the hunger of cash-laden savers to invest in China's stock markets despite warnings of a bubble. PetroChina's capitalization rocketed to $1.1 trillion early yesterday when its shares began selling on the Shanghai A-share market, later retreating to a value of about $980 billion.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is likely losing both its library and its beloved librarian. Cecelia Petro, who opened the library in 1998 after some scientists decided that a research-based institution needed one, is among eight people agencywide who are being laid off under the governor's budget. Unless the DNR can find outside funding, the Carter Library and Information Resource Center probably will close in June. Petro, who is 56 and has worked at the agency for two decades, said her primary worry is not finding a job but finding a home for the library's collection of well-worn journals and state-published materials.

Mark Krug leases his Rosedale service station from Exxon, buys his gasoline from Exxon and pays the oil giant to use its gold-plated brand name. At his Petro stations in Timonium and Ellicott City, Krug owns the property, buys generic gasoline from whoever gives him the lowest price and hopes consumers don't much care about a tiger in their tank as much as they do about shaving the price of a fill-up. Stations such as Petro may lack the market power of a well-known - and highly marketed - brand, but they can usually beat the prices of stations that carry logos like Exxon, Shell and BP Amoco, and make more money doing it. And at a time when pump prices have risen sharply, that has meant a boost in business for unbranded dealers.

The company that owns the tanker that exploded on Interstate 95 this week received a "deficient" accident rating from a federal safety agency because its trucks have been involved in a high number of crashes in the past few years. Texas-based Petro-Chemical Transport's 300 trucks were involved in 30 accidents in the past year, though none as serious as the explosion Tuesday that killed four people and shut down part of the East Coast's major thoroughfare for four hours. The number of accidents led to a rating of 97 on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's 100-point scale, on which 100 is the worst score and zero the best.
