Drivers in New Brunswick are getting another break at the gas pumps this week, thanks to the Energy and Utilities Board’s latest adjustments to the cost of petroleum products.
The new maximum price of regular self-serve gasoline is now $163.4 per litre, a decrease of 2.7 cents. Diesel prices also went down by 5.3 cents to a new maximum of around $157.9 per litre.
Most stations across New Brunswick sell both fuels for a few cents less.
New Brunswickers who use furnace oil to heat their homes will also pay a bit less to fill their tanks this week.
Prices for heating oil went down by 5.3 cents to a new maximum price of $139.5 per litre. Propane also decreased, going down by six-tenths of a cent to $108.6 per litre.
New Brunswick’s Energy and Utilities Board adjusts petroleum prices every Thursday night at midnight.
