A slight drop in the price of gasoline should be on the way for Nova Scotians.

When prices are adjusted at midnight, they’re expected to drop by a little less than a cent per litre.

George Murphy of Consumers for Fair Gas Prices told NEWS 95.7 demand has been up and down throughout the summer.

“We had basically two weeks of increases that pretty much underscored the fact that demand showed a little bit of an uptick.” he explained. “Now we’ve got the dropping of demand again, on the downhill side of it, as we come to the end of summer.”

Across the border in New Brunswick, regulated prices fell by 8/10ths of a cent to a new maximum of 110.4.
