Gaso­line sum­mer­time blues

The Southern Gazette - - NEWS -

The roller coaster ride is a pop­u­lar at­trac­tion at mid­ways and fair grounds dur­ing the sum­mer, and it’s pop­u­lar as well in gaso­line pric­ing.

Thurs­day, the Pub­lic Util­i­ties Board set max­i­mum prices for all reg­u­lated pe­tro­leum prod­ucts in all ar­eas of the prov­ince and again turned the down­ward trend of the pre­vi­ous week to an up­ward one last week..

It didn’t amount to much – only three tenths of one cent – but it was up.

Burin Penin­sula mo­torists now stop at the pumps and pay $1.391 for reg­u­lar, self-serve gaso­line and $1.421 for full ser­vice. Diesel went up al­most two cents a litre to $1.388 lo­cally.

Heat­ing fu­els were up over a cent and a-half litre and is now pegged on the penin­sula at $1.0444 for fur­nace oil and $1.0926 for stove oil. Propane went up al­most half a cent a litre to 74.8 cpl. The next sched­uled price change is this Thurs­day.
