Gasoline prices are once again plummeting across the nation, and in the Hoosier State, the average price of a gallon of unleaded gasoline is sitting at $1.79.  

Jet fuel prices have been dropping as well. However, airline fares haven’t seen as drastic of a price drop.

About 30 percent of airlines’ operating costs are fuel. With the large dip in fuel prices, you might expect to see a dip in ticket prices, but that is not where the money has gone.

The City of West Lafayette expects to roll out a new digital parking enforcement system in January, about eight months later than originally planned.

The project hit a roadblock earlier this year when the company that had been hired to provide the electronic monitoring system filed to liquidate its assets in federal bankruptcy court.  

City leaders say there was no way to predict the company’s financial problems, and the bankruptcy case was compounded by the fact that the corporation was originally formed in Canada.

Even though Indianapolis Mayor-Elect Joe Hogsett has to wait until next year to be sworn in, he’s already making public safety a priority for a city he says has been witness to a violent crime wave.

Hogsett says he’ll at least name a public safety director and police chief before his term begins so they can start alongside him. As soon as he’s sworn in, he plans on convening a meeting of safety officials immediately.

Indiana will request a five year extension for when high school teachers are required to hold a master's degree and additional college credits so they can teach dual credit courses.

But now state education officials and lawmakers have to figure a way for nearly 2,000 teachers to earn and pay for additional college-level credentials.

Indiana Superintendent Glenda Ritz says if lawmakers don't incentivise going back to college or teaching dual credit, educators could leave the profession.
