JHS Graduation To Be Held At Chautauqua

Due to new state Department of Health guidance released this week that eliminates previously imposed capacity limits, Jamestown High School announced will hold one graduation ceremony on Friday, June 25, at 7 p.m. in the Chautauqua Institution Amphitheater for all 2021 graduates. There will be no restrictions on the number of guests that can attend the ceremony; however, all unvaccinated attendees must wear a mask, including children under 12.

Gas Prices Inch Up One Cent

Gas prices in Jamestown are one cent higher this week at $3.137, according to AAA East Central’s Gas Price Report. The average price during the week of June 7 was $3.123, while the average price during the week of June 15, 2020, was $2.259. At $71 per barrel, crude oil has increased to its highest price since October 2018 and is now $23 per barrel more expensive than it was this past January. Crude prices have steadily climbed this year along with optimism for the COVID-19 vaccine and the promising impact it will have for global gasoline demand. Additionally, crude prices were bolstered by the latest Energy Information Administration (EIA) report revealing that total domestic crude supplies decreased by 5.2 million barrels to 474 million barrels last week. For this week, crude prices could continue to rise if EIA’s report shows another inventory decline.
