Attornery General Issues Subpoenas

Kentucky's attorney general issues civil subpoenas to Marathon Ashland Oil Company as part of an investigation into price gouging.

Attorney General Jack Conway is trying to figure out why drivers were forced to pay more at the pump in Louisville and northern Kentucky than in other parts of the state.

Along with the subpoenas, several Kentucky officials are asking the FTC and the U.S. Department of Justice's antitrust division to review the 1997 merger of Marathon and Ashland Oil to determine it's affect on gas prices in the state.
