An­other four cents lopped off gas

The Southern Gazette - - NEWS -

The price of a litre of gas has fallen just over four cents to less than $1.40 again on the Burin Penin­sula.

The Pub­lic Util­i­ties Board Thurs­day once more set max­i­mum prices for all reg­u­lated pe­tro­leum prod­ucts in all ar­eas of the prov­ince.

The 4.3 cpl re­duc­tion means lo­cal mo­torists are now pay­ing $1.384 for reg­u­lar, self serve gas and $1.414 for full ser­vice. Diesel is still above the $1.40 mark at $1.422 with a drop of 2.1 cpl.

Fur­nace and stove oil heat­ing fu­els de­creased by 1.62 cpl with res­i­dents charged $1.0803 a litre for fur­nace oil and $1.1285 for stove oil There was no change in propane heat­ing fuel at 81.2 cpl. The drop in fuel prices likely re­acted to the spike re­al­ized the pre­vi­ous week with the Syr­ian cri­sis.

The next sched­uled price change is this Thurs­day.
