Gas Goes Up By Six Cents, While Diesel Barely Moves

Adjustments made by the province’s Energy and Utilities Board on Thursday night mean some drivers are paying more for fuel, while others are paying around the same.

The new maximum price of regular self-serve is around $1.65 per litre, an increase of a little more than six cents.

Diesel prices, on the other hand, only increased by six-tenths of a cent to around $1.93 per litre.

Most stations typically sell both fuels for a few cents less than the maximum price.

Furnace oil also didn’t budge too much, coming in at about $1.73, and propane increased by half of a cent to around $1.10 per litre.

New Brunswick’s Energy and Utilities Board sets maximum petroleum prices across the province every Thursday night at midnight.
