Gas prices to drop around 10 cents this week

The average price of gas in Ohio drops 10 cents this week.

Ohio has topped the charts for the biggest weekly change in gas price averages in the country; Ohio is the 11th lowest in the nation at $2.70 per gallon.

Nationwide, 44 states have less expensive or steady gas price averages compared to last Monday. However, the cheaper trend may be reversing. “If demand continues to strengthen and inventories decrease in the weeks ahead, motorists can expect gas prices do a reversal and start to increase again,” said AAA spokeswoman Jennifer Moore. “AAA expects the national gas price average to range between $2.85 and $3.05 through Labor Day, likely seeing the summer’s highest prices in June.”

Moving into this week, another factor that will influence gas prices in the near and long-term will be outcomes from the June 22 OPEC meeting in Vienna, Austria. The cartel, along with other major producers including Russia, will discuss increasing oil production ahead of the year-end scheduled dissolution of its production reduction agreement.

Motorists are spending $69 or more a month for gas compared to last year, but that won’t stop their summer travel. Gas expenses are accounting, on average, for 7% of an American’s 2018 annual income.

Home offered calf left to mourn after semi hits, kills mom on I-70 in Huber Heights  

UPDATE @ 10:02 p.m.: A national organization is offering a home for a calf whose mother was killed on I-70 West early Friday as the two walked near the interstate.

The calf has been  taken to a farm where he’ll stay temporarily as Huber Heights police continue working to locate the owner.

A semitrailer hit and killed the cow as the two walked up the on-ramp from state Route 235 to I-70 about 6 a.m.

Police said they aren’t sure how the cows made their way to the interstate. There was no information about the condition of the rig’s driver.

Police put in a call to Timothy Manos, a local livestock expert, who helped capture the calf. Police officers blocked the right lane along the interstate while they fed the calf greens to keep the young one calm.

Manos reached out to another local rancher for an extra set of hands to help coax the calf into a trailer for the ride to the temporary digs.

Tonight, Farm Sanctuary, whose officials bill it as “America’s leading farm animal protection organization,” is offering the calf a home.

“We were heartbroken to hear about the runaway cow and watched tragically as his companion, who is presumed to be his mother, was struck and killed...,” officials with the Watkins Glen, N.Y.-based organization said in a prepared statement issued by spokeswoman Meredith Turner-Smith.

“We commend Huber Heights police for consoling and protecting the distressed calf. Cows are sentient animals with strong maternal bonds and grieve deeply when they lose a loved one. We want to offer a lifetime of care for this traumatized youngster,” the statement read in part.

Authorities were searching for Holroyd, 49, in connection with a murder Tuesday morning in Santa Rosa Beach in Walton County, according to the sheriff’s office.

When they attempted to access his apartment building Tuesday afternoon, authorities said Holroyd opened fire on officers, sparking an intense exchange of gunfire, then a standoff that lasted several hours.

Update 4:10 p.m. EDT:

Investigators were searching the Briarwood Apartments after several rounds of gunfire were exchanged Tuesday afternoon between shooting suspect Kevin Robert Holroyd  and Bay County first responders.

Bay County authorities believe Holroyd is involved with the shooting death of a 30-year-old man in Walton County Tuesday morning, the News Herald reported.

Investigators had been watching Holroyd’s apartment when they received reports of a gas leak at the building, according to the News Herald. When they tried to check the building, the suspect opened fire.

Update 3:50 p.m. EDT: The Walton County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed the standoff in Panama City is related to a fatal shooting at a home in Santa Rosa Beach.

The victim has been identified as Clinton Street. Street was 30 years old and was killed at a house on White Heron Drive. There’s no word on what led to Street’s death or who the suspect is, but the sheriff’s office said in a tweet that the two incidents are related.

Record set in Dayton for number of measurable snow days in April

UPDATE @ 10 p.m.: A tenth of an inch of snow and voila! It’s a Dayton record for the most number of days in April with measurable (at least that amount) of snow, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell said.

According to data released as of 8 p.m. by the National Weather Service in Wilmington…. a tenth of an inch of snow has been measured at Dayton International Airport for Monday, April 16, 2018.

>>Live Doppler 7 Radar

This sets a record at 5 for most number of days in April with measurable (at least a tenth of an inch) of snow.

Cincinnati also broke the record, with 5 days of accumulating snow in April.

INITIAL REPORT

Sunshine and 70s last week, snow showers and cold this week. 

Mother nature can’t seem to make up her mind.

Temperatures have plunged 40 degrees since Friday and it seems like winter just doesn’t want to let go. 

So how unusual is it to see snow showers in late April? Actually, it’s not that rare.

>>FREEZE WARNING tonight: What you need to do

"It is important to note though that we have had snow in May before," Elwell said, "but we can never rule that out." 

The latest seasonal measurable snowfall record is a half-inch of snow on May 9, 1923. 

>>5-day forecast: How much more snow will we see?

But Elwell doesn't think we'll be seeing May snow. 

We are on track, however, to make it into the top 5 for snowiest Aprils on record. 

And Elwell believes we are about to turn a corner and say goodbye to the ever changing weather pattern, and it could be as early as this week. 

"The stronger sun angle this time of year will eventually win out, and the warmth of spring will return. But don’t look for as fast as a warm-up as we saw last week," he said. 

Elwell strongly suggests holding off on any significant planting other than cold season vegetables right now. While the average last freeze date in Dayton is April 19, temperatures in the region have dipped below 32 degrees as late as May 3. 

And the way this year has gone, Elwell said it wouldn’t surprise him if we hit another record. 

The advice has always been to wait until Mother’s Day weekend to do any planting. This year, that falls on May 13.

"I'd say that's good advice to follow, especially this year," Elwell said.
