Propane drops in price; other fuels rise
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.
Heating fuels are now adjusted to 77.66 cpl for furnace oil; 82.16 cpl for stove oil and 71.10 for propane.
For Zone 14, the winter season suspension of maximum prices has been lifted.
The next scheduled price change is this Thursday.
