Feb 24 2022, 8:27 pm

As the Russia-Ukraine conflict dominates headlines, car owners will soon be feeling its effects in their wallets as Toronto gas prices are expected to see an upwards spike.

Dan McTeague, president of Canadians for Affordable Energy, recently tweeted that despite the steep gas prices car owners are currently paying for, things are about to get even more expensive.

On February 24, he tweeted: “Gas price alert: unless markets make a dramatic shift, today and tomorrow will be the best days to fill up at the gas station across most of Canada.”

McTeague also tweeted that, Canada currently imports 2,500 barrels a day from Russia at $60 a barrel.

Gas Wizard, a site that predicts gas price changes in cities across Canada, listed that on February 25, it expects regular gas to reach 158.9 cents a litre, while premium is expected to go up to 183.9 cents a litre.
