• Gasoline prices will decrease by 2.5 cents per litre (cpl);
• Furnace and stove oil prices will decrease by 3.0 cpl;
• Diesel prices will decrease by 3.0 cpl; and
• There will be no change in propane prices at this time.
Including adjustments for taxes, pump prices for regular unleaded gasoline at self-serve outlets will now range from 103.7 cpl to 104.9 cpl.
