The amount Prince Edward Islanders pay at the pump and on their home heating bills dropped again overnight Thursday.

Gasoline went down by two cents a litre at midnight and diesel by one cent, according to a release from the Island Regulatory and Appeals Commission.

That leaves self-serve regular unleaded gas at between 95.0 and 96.1 cents a litre and diesel hovering between 99.9 cents and $1.011 per litre.

Furnace oil dropped by 1.5 cents a litre, so that the maximum price that can be charged is 70.1 cents a litre.

This is the second week in a row for a price drop, after two weeks of increases for diesel and heating oil in early October.
