Well gas prices did NOT change on the weekend...(I guess the energy & utilities board likes to take a long weekend too)...but insiders are saying that when the regular adjustment happens tomorrow night that prices could jump up almost 15¢! We'll have to wait and see on that one. Regular self serve is just under $1.10 a litre at most places in Greater Moncton right now.  Regulators did use an interruptor clause in Nova Scotia on the weekend...gas prices are 10-15 cents higher there than in New Brunswick right now.

The province's first 2 electric buses are on the road this week...Treasury Board President, Roger Melanson told the Times and Transcript the buses are part of an action plan to address the carbon footprint. Each bus cost $300,000, three times the cost of a regular school bus....and they have a 15-year life span, but will be more cost-effective, charging them costs about a third what it does to put diesel in a normal bus. Melanson admits the up-front cost is more, but long-term, it's a better deal.  One bus will operate in the Anglophone East School with the other serving Francophone South.
