  • Alberta says last year's budget surplus bigger than expected

    The Canadian province of Alberta said on Tuesday its budget surplus for the last fiscal year was nearly C$350 million ($280.2 million) bigger than forecast even though oil prices plunged in the second half of the year. Alberta, whose oil sands are the largest source of U.S. oil imports, posted a surplus of C$1.4 billion for the 2014-15 fiscal year, which ended on March 31. The increase came as the province's revenue, about a fifth of which comes from the oil and gas industry, was almost C$1 billion more than forecast as oil prices rose as high as $107 per barrel in June before collapsing to less than $47 by the end of March.
