More Pain At The Pumps This Week

Drivers in New Brunswick felt more of a pinch at the fuel pumps Friday after the Energy and Utilities Board’s weekly price adjustment.

The provincial regulator, which sets the maximum prices for petroleum products, hiked gasoline and diesel prices on Thursday night.

According to the EUB, the maximum price of regular self-serve gasoline went up by 4.9 cents to $1.69 per litre.

Diesel prices saw the steepest climb, jumping 15.6 cents to a new maximum price of $2.31 per litre.

Most stations across the province normally sell both fuels for a few cents less than the maximum.

Meanwhile, furnace oil will cost you about $2.10 per litre after an increase of 14.6 cents, and propane went up 2.5 cents to $1.14 per litre.

The EUB adjusts fuel prices every Thursday night.
