Current prices

Gasoline:  $1.195-$1.205

Diesel: $1.213-$1.223

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.
