Fill up your tanks before Friday!
Travelling is about to get more expensive for drivers who'll be digging deep into their pockets this week to afford Ontario gas prices.
Dan McTeague, gas analyst and president of Canadians for Affordable Energy, said in a tweet on Wednesday that prices are set to rise another five cents, moving up to 140.9 cents per litre on Friday.
⛽️ Price ⚠️: after rising 1 cent a litre Thursday, #gasprices are expected to really rock your pocket with a 5 cent… https://t.co/mtyL2ci1KX— Dan McTeague (@Dan McTeague) 1629935547.0
The significant leap in prices is expected to impact several areas, including Toronto, Ottawa, Hamilton, London, Barrie and Windsor.
The province's gas price reached 140.9 cents per litre at least two other times this year. Before that, the province hadn't seen prices this high since June 21, 2014.
So if you're looking to fill up your tanks, you will want to do so before Friday.
