Oiling gravel township roads is still done regularly in southeastern Ohio - only in front of homes though.  Presumably the EPA condones this application...

>The dirt road that ran in front of my Great Grandfather Allison's farm near Draper in Pulaski County (VA) was sprayed regularily during the summer.  In the 1950s and 60s. I would stay there during the summers with my Grandmother and Great Aunts....when the road dust became bad they would call the Highway Dept. They would come and spray the road with oil.
