Gas prices on the rise in Saskatchewan due to Hurricane Harvey

Gas prices on the rise in Saskatchewan due to Hurricane Harvey

MONTREAL | up to $ 1.35 per litre for regular, the price of gas has suffered another dramatic increase in ridership in Montreal on Friday, with an average of 12 cents of the increase.

Dan McTeague, senior petroleum analyst at GasBuddy.com, predicted in tweets that Greater Toronto, Hamilton, London and the Ottawa area can expect to see a five-cent gas price hike on Friday.

On Monday, the average price on the island was $1.16.

According to gasbuddy.com, the average retail price of gasoline in Ontario has risen from 107.5 cents per litre on August 28 to 120.9 cents per litre on September 1.

Hurricane Harvey has wreaked havoc in Texas along the Gulf Coast, causing oil refineries to pre-emptively shut down production.

He said any fluctuations in retail prices, which were hovering at either 99.9 cents or 107.9 cents at many local outlets on Friday, would be as a result of gas stations adjusting their retail margins.

"The big issue? Shortages in the USA northeast".

In Western Canada, prices also leapt based on oil trading in Chicago, said Mr. McTeague.

The online gas price monitoring site essencemontreal.com is showing the $1.35 price in several Montreal neighbourhoods, including Ahuntsic, Villeray, Saint-Henri, Saint-LĂ©onard and downtown.

A gas shortage in the USA could spill over into Canada, McTeague told Global News.

With the ripple effects of Hurricane Harvey being felt across North America, gas prices are on the rise in Saskatchewan as the Labour Day long weekend kicks off. Now there is no indication the refineries have been damaged by the hurricane or resulting flooding. "We're just not in a position where we can sell spare capacity". "And simply because buyers in the States would be looking to Canada for supply, we're seeing higher wholesale prices in Eastern Canada as well", Ervin said.
