Gas prices are going UP again tonight…experts say another 2 to 3 cents! Regular self serve is selling for around $1.23 here in Greater Moncton.
The same sort of increase is expected for diesel and furnace oil. Meanwhile propane is heading in the other direction…it’s dropped more than 15 cents since mid-February.

Another jobs announcement in Greater Moncton yesterday…this time it’s 85 Purolator jobs in Dieppe…Purolator is expanding its business services centre in the city….creating up to 85 jobs over the next five years with support from the provincial government. They’ll get up to $560,000 from Opportunities NB to help offset costs. The government says that creating up to 85 jobs will generate an additional $1.8 million in provincial tax revenue over five years and $16.8 million in GDP over that same period.

The DFO informed lobster fishermen in the province yesterday that new rules will be enforced this season to protect endangered North Atlantic right whales. The rules include closing parts of the water off of New Brunswick and enforcing what they call “dynamic management closures”…which means when a right whale is spotted they’ll close the area to fishing for a minimum of 15 days. The decision comes after 18 North Atlantic right whales were killed in Canadian and U.S. waters last year.
