The price of all fuels in the province was hiked last week with a whopping eight cents a litre on propane heating fuel.
The Public Utilities Board Thursday set maximum prices for all regulated petroleum products in all areas of the province, except where adjustments have been suspended for the winter months.
Included in the changes to maximum fuel prices are:
- all types of gasoline increased by up to 1 cent per litre (cpl);
- diesel motor fuel jumped by up to 2.3 cpl.
Burin Peninsula motorists are now paying $1.363 a litre at the pumps for regular self-service gasoline and $1.383 for full service. Diesel is costing $1.482 a litre.
Heating fuels also went up with local consumers now paying $1.091 a litre for propane.
