Most fuels dropped in price across Newfoundland and Labrador Thursday, with the exception of gasoline.

The Public Utilities Board increased the price of gasoline by two cents per litre as part of its weekly price adjustment, putting the maximum retail price on the Avalon Peninsula — the zone where prices are cheapest — at $1.72 per litre.

Maximum prices across the rest of Newfoundland range from between $1.72 and $1.89 per litre depending on your location and between $1.73 and $2.12 per litre across Labrador.

The price of diesel decreased by 4.6 cents per litre, putting prices between $2.09 and $2.21 per litre in Newfoundland and between $2.01 and $2.54 per litre in Labrador.

Furnace oil dropped by 4.19 cents per litre, meaning customers in Newfoundland will now pay between $1.25 and $1.44 per litre for the fuel.

The price of stove oil decreased by 4.13 cents per litre across Newfoundland and by 3.95 cents per litre in Labrador West and Churchill Falls. Prices for the fuel now range between $1.31 and $1.50 per litre on the island and between $1.41 and $1.95 per litre in Labrador.

Propane saw no change in price, keeping prices between $1.06 and $1.16 per litre in Newfoundland and between 92 cents and $1.37 per litre in Labrador.
