Fuel prices in Sault Ste. Marie are on their way up for a second time in two days.
Circle K upped their prices at the noon hour Wednesday from $1.16 to $1.22.9 a litre. Others are expected to follow as the long weekend always means an increase at the pumps.
Sault Ste. Marie prices were pegged at just $1.06 a litre on Monday. News of a shortage due to refineries in Texas closing down as a result of tropical storm Harvey forced a ten cent increase at the pumps locally.
If you recall Sault Ste. Marie enjoyed low gas prices at the beginning of summer when prices dropped to just .97 cents a litre in June.
