Gas prices in Nova Scotia fell 10.2 cents on Saturday morning after the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board invoked an interpreter clause. The drop comes a day after gas prices dropped nine cents on Friday during a scheduled price change.
This section allows the board to adjust fuel prices outside of weekly price changes.
“This change is necessitated due to the significant change in the market prices of gasoline and diesel oil,” said an NSUARB release.
In Halifax, the minimum price for regular, self-serve unleaded gasoline is 163.1 cents per liter. Gas prices are the most expensive in the Cape Breton region at 165 cents a liter.
Diesel price also fell by 7.9 cents overnight.
Gas prices have not been so low since March 2, when the minimum price for regular gasoline in the Halifax area was 156.5 cents a liter.
This latest reduction comes after a series of price drops in July. A month ago, Nova Scotians were paying around $1.93 a liter.
