Fuel prices expected to increase this week

It looks like our streak of gas price drops in New Brunswick is coming to an end.

An industry source says fuel prices will rise across the board on Thursday night.

The price of regular gasoline is expected to increase by just under two cents per litre.

Diesel prices are expected to rise as well, though by just under one cent per litre.

Currently, New Brunswickers are paying a maximum of $1.72 per litre for regular self-serve, $1.72 per litre for diesel, and $1.43 per litre for home heating oil.

In Nova Scotia, regular self-serve ranges from $1.75 to $1.79 per litre while diesel is selling for between $1.74 and $1.78 per litre.

On Prince Edward Island, the price for regular self-serve is around $1.74 per litre, diesel costs around $1.77 per litre, and home heating oil is selling for a maximum of $1.22 per litre.

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