Gas, diesel prices expected to fall in N.B.

A much-needed break at the fuel pumps is coming for New Brunswick drivers, according to an industry source.

Gasoline and diesel prices are both expected to drop by around three cents per litre on Thursday night.

That will help offset some of the increases in gasoline prices we have seen over the past few days.

Prices spiked nearly eight cents on Wednesday when the provincial regulator invoked the interrupter clause.

That was on top of a nearly four-cent jump we saw on Monday due to an increase in the carbon tax.

Currently, New Brunswickers are paying a maximum of $1.83 per litre for regular self-serve, $1.91 per litre for diesel, and $1.59 per litre for home heating oil.

In Nova Scotia, regular self-serve ranges from $1.70 to $1.74 per litre while diesel is selling for between $1.90 and $1.94 per litre.

On Prince Edward Island, the price for regular self-serve is around $1.69 per litre, diesel costs around $1.92 per litre, and home heating oil is selling for a maximum of $1.37 per litre.

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