After cutting prices by 4.0 cents per litre last week, the Island Regulatory and Appeals Commission is expected to stand pat during its Oct. 1 price adjustment, The Guardian has learned.
The Island Regulatory and Appeals Commission cut prices for all fuels last week in an unscheduled price adjustment. Prices are usually updated at the beginning and in the middle of each month.
That pushed pump prices down to between 128.4 and 129.5 cents per litre.
Prices will stay there in October.
There is not expected to be a change in the price of gas, diesel or home heating oil.
Gasbuddy.com, a website that tracks gas prices in Canada, says the average price at the pumps is now 124.0 cents per litre, which means Islanders are still paying more than the national average for gasoline.
The next scheduled price adjustment is Oct. 15.
