  • Diesel prices will decrease by 1.5 cpl; and
  • Propane prices will decrease by 0.5 cpl for both Irving Energy Distribution and Marketing and  Superior Propane, and by 1.1 cpl for Kenmac Energy Inc.

Including adjustments for taxes, pump prices for regular unleaded gasoline at self-serve outlets will range from 117.9 cpl to 119.0 cpl. Pump prices for diesel will range from 141.7 cpl to 142.8 cpl. Maximum before tax propane prices will now range from 82.2 cpl to 83.5 cpl.
