P.E.I. driv­ers pay­ing ex­tra 2.9 cents per litre for gas this morn­ing

P.E.I. driv­ers are pay­ing an ex­tra 2.9 cents per litre at the pumps this morn­ing.

The Is­land Reg­u­la­tory and Ap­peals Com­mis­sion, which reg­u­lates fuel prices on the Is­land, ap­proved the rate in­crease. That pushes prices at self-serve out­lets to 106.8 to 108.0 cents per litre.

Fur­nace and stove oil prices also in­creased by 2.9 cents per litre.

Diesel prices took the largest in­crease, go­ing up 4.0 cents per litre.

Propane prices de­creased by 0.8 cents per litre at Su­pe­rior and Irv­ing.

But propane prices in­creased by 1.0 cents per litre at Ken­mac

En­ergy.

In­creases in the whole­sale price of gas, fur­nace oil and diesel over the past two weeks now ne­ces­si­tate the price in­creases, the com­mis­sion said.

The next sched­uled price ad­just­ment is on Aug.
