Fuel prices are on their way up in the region.
As of Wednesday (Jun.13), the average gas price in Fort Saskatchewan was around 119.9 cents per litre, but experts are saying that wont last for long.
"We're likely to see an increase of four to seven cents a litre and potentially as high as 129.9 (cents per litre)," said Dan McTeague, senior petroleum analyst at GasBuddy.
McTeague predicted drivers will see the increase in price on Thursday afternoon or into Friday morning. 
Multiple reasons are potential causes for the spike, including Suncor's extended maintenance at their Strathcona County refinery and the Edmonton International Airport reporting significant draws in oil, gasoline and diesel stockpiles.
The national average for gas is around 129 cents per litre.
