Energy and transportation experts are heading to Columbus to discuss ways to encourage production of compressed natural gas vehicles and develop low-emission natural gas fuels.
A summit hosted by America's Natural Gas Alliance will be held Tuesday at Ohio State University. It will be patterned after an energy summit convened by Republican Gov. John Kasich last year.
The governor's office and Public Utilities Commission of Ohio are coordinating the event.
Gasoline costs slightly more this week at Ohio gas pumps, though it's still much cheaper than the highs seen during the spring.
A survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express shows Ohio's average price for regular-grade gasoline is $3.60 a gallon, up 2 cents from last Monday's $3.58.
Ohio prices soared to a record $4.16 for regular on May 4 following a spike in oil prices as an anti-government uprising inLibya caused shortages of crude from that country.
