Recently, prices at the pump have slowly gone down, but that isn't expected to continue.
Average retail gasoline prices in the capital region have fallen 3.2 cents per litre in the past week, averaging 99.09 cents per litre yesterday (December 4).
"A stronger loonie, tax cuts in the offing for Americans, undisclosed refinery troubles, including the Suncor Sarnia refinery and chronic shortages in Vancouver could continue to push prices up across much of Canada," said Dan McTeague, senior petroleum analyst at GasBuddy.
McTeague predicts those selling gas around the buying rate will be bumping their prices to a bit above $1.00 per litre.
Anything around a dollar doesn't seem so bad. A month ago, gas was over $1.20 per litre.
In December of last year (2016), gasoline was around 80 cents per litre.
