A Pushmataha County man is facing felony charges of possession of methamphetamine after a drug dog alerted to the presence of drugs during a traffic stop last week.
According to information filed in district court, Deputy Shawn Culver, Pushmataha County Sheriffâ€™s Department, was requested to assist Deputy James Marzek north of the Nashoba turnoff on Highway 271 at approx. 10 p.m. Tuesday.
National average gas prices increased 30.8 cents or 8.75 percent a gallon in August. This was the largest monthly price increase since April 2011 and the second highest increase for the month of August in AAAâ€™s records, which date to 2000.
â€śIt has been a really tough summer for drivers nationwide with high gas prices breaking daily records,â€ť said Chuck Mai, AAA Oklahoma spokesman. â€śEvery week there seems to be something new driving up gas prices, whether it is a major refinery fire, a pipeline closure or a Gulf Coast hurricane.â€ťÂ
