With winter in full swing, the price of most fuels climbed once more today.

The Public Utilities Board re-set its maximum prices for all regulated petroleum products in all areas of the province upward, with the exception of propane, which remained unchanged at 95.9 cents per litre (cpl) on the Burin Peninsula.

At the pumps, all types of gasoline motor fuel jumped by up to 1.4 cpl while diesel motor fuel increased by up to exactly one cpl.

For heating fuels, furnace oil rose by 0.78 cpl and stove oil went up by 1.39 cpl.

It means motorists in the region are now paying $1.383 a litre for regular self-serve gas and $1.413 for full service. Diesel has jumped to $1.494.

Peninsula residents are being billed $1.1353 a litre for furnace oil and $1.1717 for stove oil.

The next scheduled price change is next Thursday.
