The Southern Gazette - - NEWS -

The Pub­lic Util­i­ties Board Thurs­day set new max­i­mum prices for all reg­u­lated petroleum prod­ucts in all ar­eas of the prov­ince, re­sult­ing in a three cent a litre drop in gaso­line.

With the ex­cep­tion of Zone 11a (Coastal Labrador South), max­i­mum fuel prices reg­is­tered changes as fol­lows:

- all types of gaso­line mo­tor fuel de­creased by 3.0 or 3.1 cents per litre (cpl); - is­land diesel mo­tor fuel dropped by 3.5 or 3.6 cpl; - Labrador diesel mo­tor fuel went down by 3.3 or 3.4 cpl; - fur­nace oil and stove oil heat­ing fuel fell by 3.6 cpl; and, - propane heat­ing fuel rose slightly by 0.6 cpl. Gas pump prices on the Burin Penin­sula are now $1.089 a litre for reg­u­lar, self-serve; $1.119 for full ser­vice and diesel is $1.074 a litre.

Fur­nace oil is pegged at 76.19 cpl; stove oil 80.69 and propane is 71.40 cpl.

These max­i­mum prices re­flect the change in the av­er­age bench­mark price of the prod­ucts over the seven-day pe­riod end­ing Tues­day of this week. The com­mod­ity mar­ket move­ments for the pe­riod were off­set to some ex­tent by a lower Cana­dian dol­lar. The next sched­uled price change is Thurs­day.
