Drivers, you might want to fill up your tanks now.
Ontario gas prices are set to jump to the highest they've been in over a year this week.
⛽️ Price ⚠️ - N/C @ the ⛽️⛽️ for Wed Feb 17, but 👀 to a 3 cent/litre HIKE Thursday for #Toronto #Ottawa #GTA… https://t.co/mBcRRIoIIu— Dan McTeague (@Dan McTeague) 1613512291.0
According to Dan McTeague, president of Canadians for Affordable Energy, parts of the province could see a 3-cent hike per litre by Thursday.
Regions affected by the increase include Toronto, Ottawa, Peterborough, Niagara, Guelph, London and more.
This means that some spots could see gas prices rise as high as 120.9 cents per litre.
According to McTeague, this is the highest price the province has seen in over 18 months.
The last time residents in the GTA were paying these prices was back in August 2019, McTeague states.
The energy expert had previously warned back in December that gas prices in Canada were likely to balloon in the coming years.
