Gas prices back up after mid-week break

By Brad Perry Sep 22, 2023 | 7:07 AM

The unexpected break we saw at the gas pumps this week is not sticking around.

The maximum price for gasoline in New Brunswick climbed 4.3 cents on Thursday night.

It comes two days after the Energy and Utilities Board invoked its interrupter clause to drop prices by nearly nine cents per litre.

The most you will now pay for regular self-serve as of Friday morning is $1.89 per litre

Meanwhile, diesel prices fell two-tenths of a cent to a new maximum of $2.14 per litre.

Most local stations are selling both fuels for a few cents less.

The price of heating increased three-tenths of a cent to a maximum of $2.04 per litre.

In Nova Scotia, where gasoline prices have fallen 13 cents in two days, regular self-serve ranges from $1.75 to $1.79 per litre. Diesel is selling for between $2.10 and $2.14 per litre.

On Prince Edward Island, gasoline prices are down eight cents to around $1.81 while diesel prices remain unchanged at around $2.12 per litre.

The New Brunswick Energy and Utilities Board adjusts prices every Friday at 12:01 a.m. An interrupter clause can be used if prices move by a minimum amount in a day.
