At the beginning of the week prices were still well below a buck a litre at .93 cents, but if you’re needing gas today you’ll be paying 12 cents more. Most stations in the Sault upped the price at midnight to $1.04.9 making it the most expensive so far this year.
Prices if you recall began to drop like a rock in December when oil prices plunged on the world market due to an over supply.
Prices at the pumps fell to a six year low in early January to below a dollar. Price of oil fell to about $53 a barrel. It has since rebounded somewhat causing gas prices to rise as fast as they fell.
