The territorial government is adjusting fuel prices in several communities starting April 5.

The communities affected are:

  • Łutsel Kʼe
  • Fort Good Hope
  • Tsiigehtchic
  • Ulukhaktok
  • Wrigley
  • Tulita
  • Sachs Harbour
  • Paulatuk

The adjustments vary by community, but generally heating fuel and gasoline prices are going up, while diesel is staying the same or dropping.

The GNWT says the adjustment reflects the current costs of fuel, transport and taxes.

Residents can compare the prices on the Department of Infrastructure’s Fuel Services webpage.
