It looks like we will see another week of fuel price increases in New Brunswick.

An industry source says gasoline and diesel prices are heading up on Thursday night.

The maximum price for gasoline is expected to climb by around one cent per litre.

Diesel users will see a larger increase, with prices anticipated to go up by around four cents per litre.

Currently, New Brunswickers are paying a maximum of $1.60 per litre for regular self-serve, $2.03 per litre for diesel, and $1.72 per litre for home heating oil.

In Nova Scotia, regular self-serve ranges from $1.59 to $1.63 per litre while diesel is selling for between $1.94 and $1.98 per litre.

On Prince Edward Island, the price for regular self-serve is around $1.60 per litre, diesel costs around $1.98 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.
