Don’t blink now, but gas prices have finally fallen below a buck a litre in Sault Ste. Marie. Most stations have cut prices to 99.9 cents a litre while others are still holding onto 100.9
Downward prices on oil now sitting below $29 a barrel along with the cheap Canadian dollar are behind the recent price cuts at the pumps.
As always, it always takes a little longer for prices to follow suit with the rest of the Province. Many cities in Ontario (Southern Ontario) have seen prices fall well below a buck. Some stations selling for as cheap as 75 cents.
It was a bout a year ago that drivers in the Sault took advantage of low fuel prices when 2015 began with prices about 97 cents. Oil by the way was a lot more expensive a year ago.
