HALIFAX – A jump at the gas pump on the eve of the long weekend.

Regulated prices rose by 4.3 cents at midnight, raising the minimum price to 108.4.

A smaller increase for the price of diesel. Fuel prices are up this morning by 2.8 cents to 98.6.

At this time last year we were paying $1.01 for gasoline, 89 cents for diesel.

Oil was trading at $46.19 U.S. per barrel, just over $3.00 less than yesterday’s closing price of $49.72.

yes, but that gas was in the ground.
there must be something illegal
going on.
a barrel of oil is cheaper.
why do they not mention the prices of oil anymore.
now they say oil prices have nothing to do with the price of gas.
someone is lying to us. i want to know who is actually lying through their teeth and have them pointed out.
