The pump is back up and running.

Hearst Esso has alerted the community that after a roughly two-and-a-half week closure to their gas section due to maintenance, they are now re-opened.

Owner Yves Morin says the reason behind the necessary maintenance and shut down of the gas section has been announced as a repair to the gas tank.

Morin says they originally closed their gas section back on July 10th in order to modernize their system, which includes changes they have made to improve service by increasing efficiency.

He says they have changed their tanks, pumps and their lines carrying the gas between them, all of which should further improve the customer experience.

Morin says today they will be giving a discount of five cents off per litre in order to make up for the loss in time.
