New Brunswick drivers, and residents who rely on heating oil, are getting a break at the gas pumps this week.
Regular adjustments made by New Brunswick’s Energy and Utilities Board Thursday night caused large decreases in the cost of gasoline and heating oil.
The new maximum price of regular self-serve gasoline is now $166.1 per litre, an decrease of 5.4 cents. Diesel costs also went down by 5.2 cents to a new maximum of around $163.2 per litre.
Most stations across New Brunswick sell both fuels for a few cents less.
New Brunswickers who heat their homes with furnace oil will also pay a bit less to fill their tanks this week.
Prices for heating oil went down by 5.2 cents to a new maximum price of $144.8 per litre. Propane also decreased, going down by one-tenth of a cent to $109.2 per litre.
New Brunswick’s Energy and Utilities Board adjusts petroleum prices every Thursday night at midnight.
