 "As expected, gasoline prices over the last week were mixed,” said Patrick DeHaan, a GasBuddy.com senior petroleum analyst. “While the national average edged lower by a couple cents nearing its lowest of the summer, 20 states saw average prices move higher, two states saw prices little changed, while 28 saw average prices decline."  

The average price for a gallon of gas in Dayton Monday morning is $2.14, with prices stable, according to GasBuddy.com. The cheapest gas Monday morning is $2.07 at Marathon on Riverside Drive. 

In Hamilton, the average price for a gallon of gas is $2.18, with prices stable. The cheapest gas is $2.05 at Five Points Markets on Grand Boulevard. 

In Springfield, the average price for a gallon of gas is $2.13, with prices stable. The cheapest gas is $2.07 at BP on E. Main Street. 

"Oil prices, after sagging to close the month of June, had started July by surging, only to let up shortly after,” DeHaan said. “Last week, however, the market resumed the rise, posting a 5 percent weekly gain, so we're likely again to see something of everything: gas prices rising in most areas, falling in a few, and perhaps changing little in a handful of places as well. The bigger issue we're now looking at that could affect gasoline prices are a last minute special meeting OPEC will be holding on July 27. It remains a bit of a mystery what, if anything, they may decide, but all eyes will be focused on any policy changes or production changes."

Great Miami River expected to crest this weekend: Where will flooding occur?

Published: Friday, February 23, 2018 @ 4:27 AM

Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini looks at how the rivers in the Miami Valley will be impacted by the rain this week.

As a Flood Watch remains in effect for the southern Miami Valley counties through Sunday morning, creeks, streams and fields will likely flood, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini.

“Creeks and streams, if not already, will likely be out of their banks through the weekend,” she said. “Fields will also be flooded with the heavy rains that arrive Friday and Saturday.”

There’s a lag between the heavy rain and water levels rising, which is why we won’t see creeks, streams and rivers recede until the end of the weekend and start to the new week.

Repairs continue after Huber Heights gas leak causes business evacuations

Executive Boulevard lanes in Huber Heights reopened after being closed for several hours following a gas leak Thursday morning.

‘SHS’ school threat believed to have originated in Springfield, police chief says

Crews continued to make repairs to the leaking gas line that evacuated fifteen business along the road around 11 a.m., according to Huber Heights Fire Chief Mark Ashworth.

Ashworth said a construction crew working in the area struck a 6-inch gas main directly under Executive, which  caused the gas to leak from underground.

Huber Heights gas leak


Executive is one of the city’s most commercial areas and Ashworth said the leak would impact the businesses in the area.

Utility companies, including DP&L and Vectren, worked on scene to isolate their utilities as well.
