An television ad promoting shale gas and featuring a Washington, Pa., coffee shop co-owner is to air during the Super Bowl, according to a state trade association.

The ad, which features Laura Ross and her Chicco Baccello café and bakery, is already airing, but will run sometime during the game as well, according to Stephanie Catarino Wissman, executive director of the Associated Petroleum Industries of PA.

The ad is sponsored by the American Petroleum Institute and is part of its Energy From Shale campaign. The campaign is intended to call attention to the benefits of shale gas development.
