The price of fuelling is up again in Newfoundland and Labrador, as the highest price of gasoline grew by 3.9 cents per liter Thursday morning.
The expansion put in place by the Public Utilities Board puts the cost of a liter of unleaded self-serve at as much as $2.22 on the Avalon Peninsula.
Across the island, costs now sit at $2.24 per liter on the Burin Peninsula, about $2.25 per liter in central Newfoundland, $2.26 on the Baie Verte Peninsula, between $2.23 and $2.24 on the island’s west coast, and $2.26 per liter on the island’s northern peninsula.
In Labrador, costs vary from $2.28 in western Labrador and $2.31 in Churchill Falls to as much as $2.47 per liter in southern Labrador.
Thursday, the diesel cost fell across the region, down 1.3 cents in Newfoundland and 11.6 cents per liter in Labrador. Prices vary from $2.25 per liter on the Avalon Peninsula to $2.98 per liter in southern Labrador.
Furnace oil declined 1.06 cents per liter Thursday morning, setting costs between $1.61 and $1.77 per liter across the province.
Stove oil grew by the same 1.06 cents per liter amount in Newfoundland but took a sharp drop in Labrador, dropping 23.7 cents per liter.
Propane also fell, dropping 1.8 cents per liter Thursday.
However, some parts of Labrador are untouched by Thursday’s changes; those areas have had cost adjustments stopped for all fuels, besides propane, since November due to a seasonal price freeze.
According to the PUB, as the calendar rolls into the Spring and summer months, that suspension will lift on May 26.
