Experts are mixed up about gas prices again this week…but this time it’s not about whether or not they’ll go up or down…just about how much they’re going up. The Times & Transcript expert says it’ll go up about a cent…Bob Jones from CBC says gas is going up 4¢. (Bobby nailed it last week btw). Regular self serve is selling for just under $1.19 a litre at some places around Greater Moncton.

The father of a L’Odyssée student is concerned over the response of school officials after he reported a bus driver on a cellphone while driving. Alain Chartrand was shocked when his son showed him a video he recorded on a school bus, April 6. Chartrand told the CBC he didn’t sense any kind of urgency on the part of school officials. Franc South officials say the district is taking the matter very seriously and are investigating. Handheld cellphone use while driving has been banned in New Brunswick for all motorists since 2011.
