Waiting an extra day to fuel up your vehicle might be a good idea this week.

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

Regular self-serve is expected to drop by around six cents per litre.

Diesel users can expect to see prices come down by around five cents.

Currently, New Brunswickers are paying a maximum of $1.81 per litre for regular self-serve, $1.79 per litre for diesel, and $1.48 per litre for home heating oil.

In Nova Scotia, regular self-serve ranges from $1.84 to $1.88 per litre while diesel is selling for between $1.78 and $1.83 per litre.

On Prince Edward Island, the price for regular self-serve is around $1.83 per litre, diesel costs around $1.85 per litre, and home heating oil is selling for a maximum of $1.29 per litre.

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