• Dunkin ‘At Home announced last week that it is launching a free nationwide recycling program for certain flexible coffee bags.
Consumers can send in their Dunkin ‘soft ground coffee bags and used whole bean coffee bags for recycling free of charge.
Once collected, the packaging is cleaned and melted into hard plastic which can be remolded to make new recycled products.
• Many gas stations in town are priced over $ 3 for a gallon of gas this week.
But there are still several that are still below this level.
AAA says, “The national average price of a gallon of gasoline increased six cents over the past week to reach $ 3.38.
“The price at the pump has increased every day for the past 27 days, adding about 20 cents to the cost of a gallon of gasoline.
“The last time prices were this high was in September 2014.
“The recent increase in the price at the pump is due to higher demand combined with lower inventories and high crude prices. Since the cost of oil is more than half the price at the pump, consumers will likely pay more as long as crude prices remain high. “
