Gas prices have been on the rise for most of the year, and it’s no surprise that they keep breaking records across the country.
Toronto is no exception. Over the weekend, gas prices in the city rose to $2.089 per litre, and there’s no sign of a price drop in sight. On Saturday, gas prices rose 6 cents in one jump.
Earlier this month, petroleum analyst Roger McKnight said that gas prices would only continue to rise leading up to the May long weekend.
