Big drop expected at the pumps in NB

No need to rush for a fuel up, as more relief at the pumps is expected for motorists in New Brunswick this week.

Industry analysts predict the price of gas will drop about 4 cents per litre when the EUB sets the new price at midnight tonight.

The price went down about 2 cents last week and retailers across the province are selling gas from $101.9 to $1.07.9 cents per litre.

A strong Canadian dollar and soft petroleum markets are helping set the price lower, and making it the lowest gas prices have been in New Brunswick in a few months.
