Friendly heads up, you might want to fill your vehicle.
 
The price of fuel is expected to go up 10-12 cents per litre sometime on Tuesday.
 
"We're looking at some pretty profound realities, especially in western Canada," said Dan McTeague, senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy. "All of our pricing is based on the Chicago spot market and that's gone up almost 40 cents per gallon in the past few weeks, today alone eight and a half cents a gallon."
 
Pumps were averaging 99.88 cents per litre in the area on Sunday (October 29), according to GasBuddy.
 
With a gas hike (of the 10-12 cents per litre), Fort Saskatchewan would be right around the national average of 113.81 cents per litre.
 
McTeague added the Explorer pipeline being shutdown in the United States is also a main contributor to the rising gas prices.
