This graphic, by Gasbuddy.com, shows the stark difference between Prince Edward Island and national gas prices.
Islanders are about to get a little break at the pumps.
Gas prices are expected to drop by 2.2 cents per litre at midnight tonight, The Guardian has learned.
That will leave pump prices at between 131.0 and 132.1 cents per litre.
Diesel prices will drop by 2.3 cents per litre.
Home heating oil, including furnace and stove oil, will drop by 2.0 cents per litre.
The new prices will go into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 15.
