Af­ter drop­ping gaso­line prices three cent a litre a week ear­lier, the Pub­lic Util­i­ties Board took back half of that Thurs­day.

The PUB sets new max­i­mum prices for reg­u­lated fu­els in the prov­ince on a weekly ba­sis. The new ad­just­ments in­clude:

* all types of gaso­line mo­tor fuel rose by 1.5 cents per litre (cpl); * is­land diesel mo­tor fuel in­creased by 1.8 or 1.9 cpl; * Labrador diesel mo­tor fuel climbed by 1.4 or 1.5 cpl; * fur­nace oil and stove oil heat­ing fu­els are up by 1.47 cpl; and, * propane heat­ing fuel fell by 0.3 cpl. Burin Penin­sula self-serve reg­u­lar gaso­line is now $1.104 a litre; full ser­vice is set at $1.134 and diesel is $1.093.
