It looks like New Brunswick drivers will see a small break at the fuel pumps this week.

An industry source says regular gasoline prices should fall by around two cents per litre.

Diesel prices are also expected to come down by around one cent per litre.

Currently, New Brunswickers are paying a maximum of $1.73 per litre for regular self-serve, $1.73 per litre for diesel, and $1.44 per litre for home heating oil.

In Nova Scotia, regular self-serve ranges from $1.76 to $1.80 per litre while diesel is selling for between $1.75 and $1.79 per litre.

On Prince Edward Island, the price for regular self-serve is around $1.75 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.
