Driv­ers will be pay­ing a bit more at the pumps to­day at P.E.I. ser­vice sta­tions

In­creases in the whole­sale price of gaso­line over the past two weeks mean higher gas prices for Is­lan­ders to­day.

The Is­land Reg­u­la­tory and Ap­peals Com­mis­sion has ap­proved a two-cent hike for the price of a litre of gas in P.E.I., as of 12:01 a.m. July 15.

In­clud­ing ad­just­ments for taxes, pump prices for reg­u­lar un­leaded gaso­line at self-serve out­lets will now range from 103.5 to 104.7 cents per litre (cpl).

There is no change to the price of diesel, fur­nace oil, stove oil or propane.

Max­i­mum be­fore tax propane prices will con­tinue to range from 70.3 to 71.0 cpl.

The max­i­mum price for fur­nace oil will con­tinue to amount to 69.4 cpl, plus tax.

The com­mis­sion’s next sched­uled price ad­just­ment will be Aug. 1.
