The cost of a fill-up higher in NB

The price at the pumps keeps rising.

It'll cost New Brunswick drivers even more for a fill-up this morning after the Energy and Utilities Board reset prices overnight.

The experts had been predicting another hike in gas and the new maximum for regular self-serve is up 4.2 cents at $1.34.4, but there's no change in the price of diesel, which sits at $1.37.

Some analysts predict gas prices could rise by another 10 to 15 cents per litre by the summer.

A combination of higher world oil prices and an increase in demand for diesel, plus seasonal factors like the shift from winter to summer gas and higher demand in the warmer months means the big drop in prices that started late last year could be a thing of the past.
