Trick for all, gas prices go up 3.1 cents
The Island Regulatory and Appeals Commission will be handed out tricks — not treats — as it gets set to increase gas prices across Prince Edward Island on Halloween Day.
The Guardian has learned that gas prices will increase by 3.1 cents per litre as of midnight tonight. That will push the price for gas at self-serve stations to between $1.02 and $1.04 cents per litre. The new prices go into effect on Sunday, Nov. 1. There are no treats for those who use diesel. It goes up two cents per litre.
Home heating oil increases 2.5 cents per litre.
The commission will make the new prices official on Sunday.
