Despite a shutdown at the Saint John Irving refinery after an explosion over the weekend, gasoline prices in Nova Scotia are not expected to rise very much this week.

Our newsroom is predicting that when the UARB resets prices at midnight, they will climb by about one cent per litre.

George Murphy of Consumers for Fair Gas Prices said he doesn't think disruptions caused by the incident at the Irving refinery or the aftermath of hurricane Michael in Florida will have much impact on price.

"There's not going to be any effect," said Murphy. "There's been a little bit of market play, but not enough to even warrant." He said Michael's path took it away from important oil infrastructure. 

In New Brunswick prices went up by 6-10ths of a cent to a new maximum price of 132.6.
