In April 2007, as part of a settlement with the state of New Hampshire, Exxon Mobil agreed to pay the State Environmental Fund $2,041,438 to reimburse the cost of cleaning up gasoline spills at 41 of its gasoline stations. The types of contamination involved included methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE), a gasoline additive the state banned in 2007. The state of New Hampshire is also currently pursuing a separate MTBE lawsuit against Exxon Mobil and 21 other oil companies.
