It was nice while it lasted. For a week gas prices fell below a buck in Sault Ste. Marie but today it ends.
Prices started to go at noon today. McDougall Fuels was first out of the gate jacking prices up by 7 cents in a matter of seconds. Some local stations are still posting the 99.9 . litre as of noon today but those prices are expected to jump in a day or two.
Sault Ste. Marie prices have been stable for months at the 103.9 price (much more than other municipalities in the north) Prices started to drop last week to 99.9 litre, a welcome relief at the pumps. Today however, as oil bounced back to over $40 U.S. a barrel, the immediate effects are felt locally.
Shell and Petro Canada prices remain at the 99.9 range as of noon Tuesday.
