(UNDATED) - Indiana gets a mixed report card for air pollution from the American Lung Association.

The "State of the Air 2008" report included Hoosiers in its finding that 125 million Americans live in areas with dangerous air pollution levels.

The report also warns that the trends show air pollution levels stalling at levels that are still dangerous.

Lake, Porter and Allen counties received "D" grades for the number of high ozone days. Indianapolis ranks as one of the most polluted cities in the nation.

Lafayette and Bloomington were listed as the least polluted cities.

The state did show improvement compared to the 2007 report.
