Gas up 6 cents in unscheduled increase
Heating Oil: $0.98
The price of gas on P.E.I. jumped six cents a litre overnight Thursday.
Diesel is also up six cents a litre, and heating oil a nickel.
The unscheduled price change pre-empts the regular mid-month price review, which was due on Sunday. The Island Regulatory and Appeals Commission said in a news release that the price increases were necessary because of an increase in whole sale prices.
