Prices at the pumps expected to drop

There could be a slight break at the pumps in New Brunswick this week.

The experts predict a drop in both gas and diesel prices after a bit of a hike a week ago.

The Energy and Utilities Board resets prices at midnight tonight and gas could drop at least a penny and diesel could fall by 3 cents per litre.

The maximum price for regular self-serve gas was set at $1.17.4 and diesel $1.30.6, but stations are selling for a few cents less.

Current gas prices around the province range from $1.12.5 to $1.13.9 cents per litre.
