The cost of gasoline took a shocking jump in Newfoundland and Labrador Tuesday morning, increasing to almost $2.25 per liter for the majority of the region.
According to a press release, the Public Utilities Board raised the maximum cost of gasoline by as much as 10.9 cents per liter Tuesday, noting a significant upward shift in the benchmarks used to specify the ultimate price of fuel.
The change sets the cost of a liter of unleaded self-serve at $2.25 per liter on the Avalon Peninsula. Prices are higher in other areas of Newfoundland, including over $2.27 per liter in central Newfoundland, nearly $2.26 per liter in Deer Lake and Corner Brook, and $2.31 per liter on the Connaigre Peninsula and $2.28 on the northern Peninsula.
In Labrador, costs vary from $1.62 per liter in central Labrador to as high as $2.34 in Churchill Falls. The most costly gas in the region is in Ramea, where it costs around $2.37 per liter.
The costs of all other fuels are untouched by Tuesday’s price shift, with the following scheduled cost changeset for Thursday.
