Gas prices in Ontario are expected to jump another nine cents this weekend.
Dan McTeague, an analyst for GasBuddy, says Canadian fuel prices are rising by more than those in the United States because the country is undersupplied with domestic fuel.
He says it’s causing an overreaction to supply shortages from closed refineries on the U.S. Gulf Coast.
Reports listed on GasBuddy.com show some already expensive prices at pumps right across the region.
Here’s a look at some of those prices per litre seen on Friday:
- Barrie – $1.22
- Gravenhurst – $1.19
- Huntsville – $1.16
- Newmarket – $1.23
- Parry Sound – $1.28
- Pointe-au-Baril – $1.39
Prices in Toronto are expected to peak at $1.32 per lite and $1.42 per litre in Montreal.
