(July 30, 2021) – Lloyd Parrott, PC Opposition Shadow Minister of Industry, Energy, and Innovation and MHA for Terra Nova is calling on the Liberal Government and the PUB to remove the 5 cent per litre interim increase on gasoline.

“Following the shut down of the North Atlantic Refinery, the PUB approved a 5 cent per litre increase in gasoline prices. Now that the refinery is sold, this interim increase should be reviewed and removed,” said Parrott”

“We need to know if this premium – on top of our already highly taxed gas supply – is meant to be permanent or if it will be removed.”

Parrott recently wrote the PUB asking for the release of information upon which this interim increase was granted. However, the PUB refused to release such information.

“I have been trying to ensure the public is informed, yet the PUB indicates that the information is of commercial sensitivity. How can the people of the province know that this gas price increase is needed if they do not have the information?” asked Parrott.

“Residents of this province cannot continue to pay high gasoline prices. Action must be taken immediately.”
