Some consumers paying more at the pump

November 28, 2022

Consumers started paying more for gasoline and less for kerosene, effective midnight Sunday, November 27.

The retail price of gasoline is now $4.29 per litre, an increase of six cents, while kerosene now cost $2.20 per litre, a decrease of 22 cents. The price of diesel remains unchanged at $4.03 per litre.

The government capped the retail prices of gasoline and diesel at $4.48 per litre and $4.03 per litre, respectively, to bring some level of predictability to the retail prices, and shield consumers from the full increase of refined petroleum products.
