W.Va. Chamber to visit Washington, Philadelphia

Jun. 20, 2013 @ 12:29 AM

The West Virginia Chamber of Commerce will visit Washington and Philadelphia on Tuesday, June 25, when it will have its annual EPA Region III fly-in.

The event in Philadelphia provides Chamber members an opportunity for an in-person conversation with a representative from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

This annual event was initiated by the West Virginia Chamber more than 30 years ago to allow Chamber members to speak directly with the regional EPA director about environmental policies. This year's fly-in is expected to have record attendance, according to the Chamber.

Also from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, the West Virginia Chamber will host "A Taste of West Virginia" in the Hart Senate Office Building on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol in Washington. The event will showcase many West Virginia products and be a part of the celebration of West Virginia's 150th birthday. West Virginia's Congressional delegation is expected to attend.

W.Va. gasoline pump price down a penny

CHARLESTON -- The price at the gas pump in West Virginia has dropped by a penny since last week.

The Triple A's weekly report on gas prices statewide shows the average price for regular unleaded is now $3.59. Nationally, a gallon of gas goes for $3.61 a gallon.

That's down 4 cents in less than one month, but still a dime more than on the same date last year.

Across West Virginia, pump prices range from a low of $3.48 a gallon in Bridgeport and Clarksburg to a high of $3.70 in Huntington.
