LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Ozone monitoring is back in place in southeastern Michigan as gasoline sales are changing to a special blend used during the summer.

The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development says monitoring began Monday in Lenawee, Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, St. Clair, Washtenaw (WASH’-tuh-naw), and Wayne counties. The extra measures are meant to lessen smog in the area.

Department official Craig VanBuren said in a news release that the summer gasoline mix increases fuel efficiency and prevents smog compounds from going into the air.

The summer gas season ends Sept. 15.
