Most fuel prices in­crease

The Southern Gazette - - NEWS -

The Pub­lic Util­i­ties Board has again jacked up its max­i­mum prices for all reg­u­lated petroleum prod­ucts in the prov­ince, ex­cept propane.

There was no change in Labrador where price ad­just­ments have been sus­pended for the win­ter sea­son.

Max­i­mum fuel prices changed Thurs­day as fol­lows:

• all types of gaso­line will in­crease by 0.3 or 0.4 cents per litre (cpl) – de­pend­ing on the HST round­ing im­pact;

* ul­tra low sul­phur diesel (ULSD) will in­crease by 2.3 or 2.4 cpl – also de­pend­ing on HST round­ing;

• No. 2 blend fur­nace oil will in­crease by 2.06 cpl;

• stove oil will in­crease by 1.28 cpl; and.

• res­i­den­tial propane used for home heat­ing pur­poses will de­crease 4.2 cpl.

Burin Penin­sula gas pump prices are now 96.9 cpl for reg­u­lar, self-serve; 99.9 for full ser­vice and diesel is 95.1 cpl.

Heat­ing fu­els are set at 66.02 cpl for fur­nace oil; stove oil is 69.02 cpl and propane for heat­ing 69.4 cpl.

The higher Cana­dian dol­lar was iden­ti­fied as one of the rea­sons for the in­crease in prices.

The next sched­uled price change will oc­cur this Thurs­day.
