Educational brochure provides insight into fuel regulation

If you have questions about the Petroleum Products Pricing Commission (PPPC) and its role in Newfoundland and Labrador, help is on the way.

The commission, which is based in Grand Falls-Windsor, has spent the past couple of months developing an educational brochure to give the public a better understanding of the PPPC�s mandate.

Commissioner George Saunders said the brochure was created in response to public feedback regarding the need for more education about PPPC regulations and its work in the province.

"We are pleased to be able to present this user-friendly brochure to the public to give them a quick reference to the things we do here," said Mr. Saunders. "It will give them insight into the fact our office is about much more than putting out prices once a month. We operate on a completely transparent basis, and we�d like the people in this province to be more aware of everything we do."

The brochure is a compact document that contains information about the commission�s background, its mandate, petroleum pricing regulation and taxation, as well as a map and description of the pricing zones in the province.

"One of the nicest features of this brochure is the fact it allows for public feedback about what we do," said Mr. Saunders. "We would like people to fill out this form and send it to us, so we are better able to understand the public�s perception of how we are doing."

The commission will distribute these brochures to municipalities and petroleum products retailers and distributors throughout the province as soon as possible.
