But the kicker in the NW is that something on the order of 80+% of our
gasoline comes from points north yet any time there's a refinery problem
in California our prices jump a few cents or a nickel. To the average

Absolutely, though as anyone who took the time to think would have known
this, I feel your facts will not influence their "truth."
As to sound levels, I did the transmitters, but I always felt those boys
back at the board in the studio were jerking the audio around just to
Years ago the audio and video feeds to the local stations used to be
separate facilities and they could control the audio levels ( I used to have
to do the adjustments on the "backbones" in Buffalo). Since the network
feeds went to satellite the audio and video are carried on the same signal.
I could be wrong, but unless the commercial is local I don't think the
stations can control the audio level.

Also, the typical audio track of commercials is highly compressed. The
result is that when you have your sets volume adjusted for a wider
dynamic range of audio (usually turned up), a compressed signal will
sound a lot louder than what you were watching. Many sets have a choice
of audio decoding options stashed somewhere in a setup menu. You can
usally play with these to reduce the effect.

|Lowest price around here is $1.71.9, but it ranges up to $1.89.9.
Oh you whiners [g].
Look what I paid a coupla months ago.
Ouch! To coin a something or other. I have a friend in mid-Cal and another in
Nevada who have both told me they were paying $2.39.9 recently, and in
Parkersburg, WV I recently paid $1.95.9, which is enough. It had gone up to
$2.03.9 in P'burg earlier.

It is more complicated than that. Usually it does not matter what the local
people think. If they get in the way of the government or bigbusiness the
local people are deported or shot.
If the trees cannot be sold as timber, they can be sold as pulp (for paper),
or burnt have the ash used as fertilizer.
Not to mention the ones that just cut it down and burn it to clear space for
farming or roads.
I hate to say this but perhaps what is needed is something along the lines
of an OPEC for wood, that sets the world harvest rates and prices so that
the resource remains available.
