Gas Wizard Dan McTeague, who's also president of Canadians for Affordable Energy, said he expects gas prices will nevertheless increase three cents a litre for Saturday.

The price increase affects all of Ontario, including Toronto, the GTA, Barrie, Ottawa, Hamilton, London, Niagara, Windsor, Sudbury, Timmins and Kingston. Top Stories
