It might be a good idea to stop for fuel on your way home Thursday night.

An industry source says gasoline and diesel prices are heading up at midnight.

The maximum price for gasoline is expected to climb by more than three cents per litre.

Diesel users will see a smaller increase, with prices anticipated to go up by just under one cent.

Currently, New Brunswickers are paying a maximum of $1.57 per litre for regular self-serve, $2.02 per litre for diesel, and $1.71 per litre for home heating oil.

In Nova Scotia, regular self-serve ranges from $1.55 to $1.59 per litre while diesel is selling for between $1.92 and $1.97 per litre.

On Prince Edward Island, the price for regular self-serve is around $1.58 per litre, diesel costs around $1.98 per litre, and home heating oil is selling for around $1.43 per litre.

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