100 new jobs coming to Louisville

Investors opened the day by pushing Wall Street into positive territory for the first time this week. News that oil prices dipped as low as $122 a barrel didn't hurt. The Energy Department said gasoline demand fell sharply last week while fuel inventories jumped more than expected.

The Dow ended the trading day down 12 points to close at 12,390.  The Nasdaq closed up 22 points at 2,503.

100 new jobs are coming to the Louisville area with the opening of a new restaurant at the Mall St. Matthews.

Red Robin Gourmet Burgers is hiring more than 100 new employees for the restaurant to open in mid July.  Red Robin is a casual dining chain with about 400 restaurants nationwide with plans to add 40 new ones this year. 

To apply for a job with Red Robin, you can visit the new location at the Mall St. Matthews behind the Cheesecake Factory.

The cost of flying continues to soar. Wednesday it's United Airlines making the move.

The airline says it is raising its domestic ticket prices by as much as $30.  United is also laying off more than 1,000 workers, parking 100 airplanes and cutting domestic capacity by 17 percent.  All of these moves are being blamed on fuel prices.

A round trip ticket could increase from $4 to $30 depending on mileage and competition.  If this sounds familiar that's because it is; United had a similar price hike in March.

The people who use the airlines on a regular basis have given the industry the worse grades for satisfaction since 2001.

Passengers expressed dissatisfaction with long lines, delays and cancellations among the nation's carriers.

In the recent survey Southwest Airlines actually received a higher approval rating than a year ago. U.S. Air got the lowest rating.
