It looks like we will see a break at the fuel pumps to start 2024.

An industry source says gasoline and diesel prices will fall on Thursday night.

The maximum price for regular self-serve is expected to drop more than 1.5 cents.

Diesel users should see prices fall by nearly four cents, according to the source.

Currently, New Brunswickers are paying a maximum of $1.55 per litre for regular self-serve, $1.97 per litre for diesel, and $1.69 per litre for home heating oil.

In Nova Scotia, regular self-serve ranges from $1.52 to $1.56 per litre while diesel is selling for between $1.86 and $1.90 per litre.

On Prince Edward Island, the price for regular self-serve is around $1.55 per litre, diesel costs around $1.93 per litre, and home heating oil is selling for around $1.42 per litre.

The New Brunswick Energy and Utilities Board adjusts prices every Friday at 12:01 a.m.
