Get Ready to Pay More At The Pump This Long Weekend

Lots to look forward to with the Victoria Day weekend upon us, but high gas prices is NOT one of them! Depending what part of the country you live in though,  don’t be surprised if you find yourself paying more at the pumps this long weekend. Jason Parent, vice-president of the analytics company Kent Group, says higher fuel prices at this time of year are to be expected because increased demand allows retailers to build in bigger profit margins. Dan McTeague of GasBuddy-dot-com says prices are expected to rise in Ontario, the Maritimes, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, but will probably fall in Alberta and Quebec due to local market forces. This morning in Ottawa, gas prices are averaging over $1.39 a liter. (The Canadian Press)
