Weather Alert

Thunderstorms & Poor Drainage Flooding Possible Today

Isolated instability showers will give way to a chance for thunderstorms this afternoon. While the overall threat for severe weather appears relatively low, one or two storms could produce gusty winds, large hail, and possibly very heavy rain. If heavy rain persists, or if multiple storms move over the same area, then low lying areas, and poor drainage locations, could experience flooding. A second round of late night storms may be possible, but the rain should clear off to the East after midnight.

June 28, 1970 - Gas wars

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 09:17 PM EDT
On this day in 1970, a big gas war was making headlines in the capital region.

11 Sunoco dealers in Schenectady were refusing to raise their gas prices... Despite orders from the company.

The dealers were hoping to force their company to roll back the price hike.

The 5 to 6 cent price hike was hefty, when you consider gas was around 30 cents a gallon back then.

There was great suspicion among the retailers that the companies conspired to raise prices.June 28, 1970 - Gas wars
