Customers in Newfoundland and Labrador will pay a little more at the pumps this week, following Thursday's price adjustment from the Public Utilities Board.

The price of gasoline increased by one cent per litre Thursday, putting the maximum cost for a litre of fuel on the Avalon Peninsula at $1.614.

Retailers often charge less than what the PUB, the province's fuels regulator, sets in a schedule that takes effect each Thursday morning.

Price ceilings are higher in other parts of the province, ranging between $1.62 and $1.78 per litre in Newfoundland and between $1.68 and $2.12 per litre in Labrador.

Diesel increased by 2.6 cents per litre across the province, putting maximum prices between $2.02 and $2.14 per litre in Newfoundland and between $2.01 and $2.55 per litre in Labrador.

The price of furnace oil rose by 3.39 cents per litre, meaning customers in Newfoundland will now pay between $1.22 and $1.40 depending on their location.

Stove oil increased by 2.15 cents per litre, and by 2.29 cents per litre in Labrador West and Churchill Falls. The increase puts prices for the fuel between $1.26 and $1.44 per litre in Newfoundland and between $1.41 and $1.95 per litre in Labrador.

Propane also saw an increase of one cent per litre, putting prices for the fuel between 99 cents and $1.12 per litre in Newfoundland and between 85 cents and $1.30 per litre in Labrador.
