Fill your vehicle up before you head of Stratford for the Canada Day long weekend.
That from Dan McTeague, Senior Petroleum Analyst with GasPriceWizard.com, who says that what’s happening on the markets and tightness in supply could lead to gas prices across the country rising and staying up for the foreseeable future.
In Stratford however, McTeague says he doesn’t see any major changes coming to the price at the pumps because retailers who had discounted their six cent retail margin previously have already now added it into the mix.
McTeague adds that the prices might even drop a little bit more in our city.
“I think they’ve already made the adjustment upwards, they’re going to probably just hold where they are now at 123.9/litre with some stations by Saturday probably walking back down to about $1.18 or $1.19 which is probably as low as they can go.”
McTeague adds that while prices might be higher in other areas, the average price of gasoline is still lower than it was two years ago for Canada Day.
