South Dakota companies pay fines for improperly labeling fuel


       PIERRE, S.D. (AP) _ Two companies accused of selling improperly labeled fuel in South Dakota have agreed to pay the state nearly $80,000.
       State Attorney General Marty Jackley announced Monday that an agreement with Harms Oil of Brookings and M.G. Oil of Rapid City has been reached after a months-long investigation.
       Jackley says in a news release that both companies cooperated with the investigation. He adds that while the investigators found that 85-octane gas had been improperly sold, the companies hadn't made "unusual profits" off the sales.
       Harms Oil agreed to pay $28,500 to the state to recoup the cost of octane testers and to pay for educational materials to be distributed to retail businesses. It also will pay Jackley's office $21,500.
        Similarly, M.G. Oil is paying $28,500 for octane testing and educational materials.
