Fuel prices drop across Nova Scotia

A bit of relief for drivers in Nova Scotia at the pump.

The Nova Scotia Utilities and Review Board used its weekly adjustment on Friday to lower the minimum price for self-serve regular gasoline by 4.1 cents to 166.3.

Diesel prices saw a similar drop, falling by 4.8 cents to a new minimum of 185.3.

At this time last year, drivers were paying 1.54 for gas and 1.63 for diesel.

On April 1st, the federal government’s carbon tax will increase on both gasoline and diesel. Gas will increase by 3.3 cents, bringing the surcharge to 17.61 cents per litre.

The tax on diesel will also increase, moving up by 4.01 cents to 21.39 cents per litre.

The NSUARB has indicated that it will issue another price adjustment on Monday to reflect the change in taxes.
