Gas prices take 3rd consecutive drop
Driving became a little cheaper again across Newfoundland and Labrador on Thursday, as fuel prices declined for the third straight week.
The Public Utilities Board ordered retailers to drop their maximum prices by about 2.1 cents per litre.
The change makes gas about six cents cheaper than it was three weeks ago.
Thursday's setting makes the maximum cost of a litre of self-serve unleaded gas $1.367 on the Avalon Peninsula, where prices are generally lowest. Some retailers charge considerably less to lure customers.
The PUB also dropped the cost of diesel by 1.7 cents.
Furnace oil and stove oil both dropped by 0.54 cents per litre.
