Local Gas Prices Top $3 a Gallon for First Time


reports, and wire, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


Gasoline's average price per gallon across Western Pennsylvania this week topped $3 -- the first time ever -- according to AAA East Central's weekly Fuel Gauge survey. For regular gasoline from a self- service pump, the average price was $3.065, up a whopping 11 cents a gallon from the week before and 22.3 cents higher than one year ago, the survey found. All 22 survey locations recorded prices at or above $3.028, according to AAA. The lowest price of $3.028 was found in Warren, Warren County and in Brookville, Jefferson County, while the highest price was found in Greensburg, Westmoreland County, $3.091 a gallon.

Creditors voting for deal

Pittsburgh Brewing Co. has received a sufficient number of creditors' votes to win approval of its reorganization plan and allow it to emerge from bankruptcy, brewery attorney Robert O. Lampl said Tuesday. Although May 29 is the deadline for creditors to submit their votes, the Lawrenceville brewery's major creditors have voted for the plan, Lampl said after a hearing in bankruptcy court. Not all the creditors with unsecured claims have voted, but the committee representing the creditors supported the plan, Lampl said, and those creditors typically vote with the committee. U.S. Bankruptcy Judge M. Bruce McCullough yesterday gave his final approval to a $250,000 loan to the brewery from the prospective buyer, Connecticut investor John N. Milne. McCullough has scheduled a hearing June 5 on approving the reorganization plan.
