A second rental-car company will begin operations at the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport on April 1. Enterprise Rent-A-Car will give airport customers a second choice, joining Avis, said Dan Dickten, director of aviation at the airport.
A magazine and newspaper stand will begin operations in the airport restaurant soon, Dickten said.
A new baggage-claim system was completed recently at the airport as part of the $3.7 million bond sale undertaken at the airport last year. Other improvements include heating and cooling, parking lot, curbs, facade, replaced waiting-area seating and a new airplane-boarding bridge.
Oil prices drop
Oil prices plunged for a second day Thursday, raising hopes that a relentless rise in gasoline prices may slow or reverse at least temporarily. U.S. benchmark crude oil fell $2.38, or 2.5 percent, to finish at $92.84 per barrel in New York, the second drop of 2 percent in two days.
Crude oil’s recent slide is a result of ample supplies and recent speculation that the Federal Reserve soon may allow interest rates to rise, which would reduce the supply of easy cash investors have been using to buy commodities such as oil.
