Another four cents lopped off gas
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.
