- Propane prices will increase by 2.2 cents per litre (cpl) for Superior Propane, by 2.8 cpl for Irving Energy Distribution and Marketing, and by 2.4 cpl for Kenmac Energy Inc.
Pump prices for regular unleaded gasoline at self-serve outlets will continue to range from 119.1 cpl to 120.3 cpl. Maximum before tax propane prices will now range from 88.5 cpl to 88.9 cpl.
