Price changes for Thursday, December 1, 2016


Here's what I have for this week's price changes.

Keep in mind that these numbers this time around for gasoline may be off a little from the actual the PUB may set, considering they picked up more volatility than my numbers did last week!

*Heating and stove oils show an increase of just 2/10ths of a cent a litre.
*Diesel shows an increase of 7/10ths and...
*Gasoline shows an added 1.5 cents a litre at the pumps.

*Don't be surprised if you see the PUB back down from last week's numbers. While I show an increase, it may be part of the volatility I missed out on LAST WEEK'S price change.

Market highlights

OPEC deal in doubt...Again
Russia remains non-committal in a production cut, while OPEC members Iraq and Iran are still holding their cards to their chests. Both Iran and Iraq want to reach their production limits before they institute any cut or freeze to production, while OPEC members Nigeria and Libya also want to be left out of any production cut the group may come up with at tomorrow's meeting.
      Interesting to watch, but oil has shown some pretty heavy volatility while OPEC itself tries to hammer out any deal.
     Also entering into market thinking is the possibility that US domestic production has shown some resiliency and may be quick to respond to "market needs" should a cut from OPEC come into play.

I'm going to leave it at that for now.

More tomorrow when the OPEC meeting breaks away.
