By BBN Staff:  Drivers all across the country are feeling the effects of a recent increase in the cost of fuel.The price increase took effect on Thursday bringing the cost of  Premium gasoline to $10.36 a gallon, up 44 cents. Regular fuel went up by 11 cents per gallon, making the new price $9.68; while Diesel went up by 15 cents per gallon, bringing the new price up to $9.03.

According to Financial Secretary Joe Waight, the increase is due to increased acquisition costs and is not the result of any tax increase.
