Local gas prices are easing back up now.  The current cost for a gallon of unleaded gas as reported by the AAA is $2.21 per gallon in the Buffalo-Niagara Falls region.  The cost one year ago on this date was sixty eight cents higher.  

BankOnBuffalo branches are open as of today.  Lobbies will be reserved for seniors and those at high-risk only from 8:30-9am Monday through Friday.  Full details on lobby and drive-up hours by location can be found online at www.BankOnBuffalo.bank

On Friday, the Seneca Nation announced its intention to start reopening the casino portion of its business.  The plan for Seneca Gaming Corp. and Seneca Gaming & Entertainment is to have the Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino, Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino and Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino re-opened by mid-June.  Business First notes that this includes bingo and video lottery terminal centers in Cuba, Irving and Salamanca.  After the gaming operations, they will phase in food, hotels and entertainment.
