Ohio gas prices are more than a dollar higher than they were a year ago just ahead of the Labor Day holiday weekend.
Today’s survey from auto club AAA and its partners shows regular-grade gasoline is averaging $3.64 a gallon statewide, compared to $2.62 last year at this time. Still, the cost of gasoline in the state has dropped since early May, when regular hit a record $4.16 per gallon.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Companies drilling for oil and natural gas in shale formations in Ohio might soon face new air pollution limits.
The new practice of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," in pursuit of gas can require multiple wells on a single site, creating a concentration of equipment that can leak hazardous airborne compounds. An Ohio Environmental Protection Agency spokesman tells The Columbus Dispatch that's causing concern about the pollutants the drilling operations might be releasing into the air.
