The province is accepting nine of the 10 recommendations made from the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board on gas promotions.

Effective Sept. 1, the province says it will establish a registry that will allow consumers to view and compare gas promotions.

In addition, the government will track petroleum pricing and volumes — to gauge the impact of gas promotions.

Earlier this year, the UARB found gas promotions don’t have a major impact on rural gas stations, and more competitive gas prices will lead to more affordable gas across the province.
