Premier Kathy Dunderdale is worried about the price of oil and asking her ministers to tighten their belts.
Speaking to the media around lunchtime, Dunderdale said that low oil prices are a concern, and the government needs to manage the situation.
With oil prices currently more than $20 per barrel below where the province forecast it, that could mean hundreds of millions of lost revenue.
Dunderdale also talked about an upcoming meeting of Canada's premiers. She said the top issues for her are health care and energy — especially the Muskrat Falls hydro project.
Dunderdale said on national issues, she's disappointed that there hasn't been more leadership from Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
