The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says people in New England states breathed easier this summer, with fewer "unhealthy ozone" days than in 2007 – unless you were in Vermont.

Five of the region’s six states had fewer poor air quality days between April and September than in the same period last year.

The EPA says the summer of 2008 had 28 days in which ozone monitors recorded concentrations above the health standards, compared with 53 last year.

But Vermont had three of those days this summer, compared with none last summer.
