Price of gas down nearly 3 cents across province

All types of fuel, with the exception of propane, are down across Newfoundland and Labrador on Thursday morning.

The Public Utilities Board decreased the maximum price of regular gasoline by 2.9 cents a litre.

That means on the Avalon Peninsula, the most you'll pay at the pumps is about $1.36. In southern Labrador, in Lodge Bay and Cartwright, that price is $1.53.

Diesel is also down, by 2.3 cents per litre.

Both furnace oil and stove oil are down by 1.99 cents each. Propane heating fuel is the only increase this week, and that's up just barely — by half a cent.
