Hello everyone,

A story on rising gas prices received the most page views on the Delaware Business Now website in April.

In second place was a story reporting Delaware’s unemployment rate hitting 4.5% in March.

Not in the top 20 were Covid-19, although Delaware saw an uptick in cases during April. It may have been the first time in two years that a Covid story was not in the top 20.

Oher stories of note included Wilmington-based Aloysius, Butler & Clark buying a suburban Philadelphia creative shop and Philadelphia Federal Reserve CEO and former University of Delaware President Patrick Harker saying that he is very concerned about the recent bout with inflation.
