*UPDATE AS OF 3:18PM AUGUST 14TH*
Uhm…we spoke a little too soon.
Gas has jumped Back up. It now sits at $1.35 in the city, 2 cents higher than yesterday’s prices.
The staff at SaultOnline.com hopes you were quick to jump on the low prices.
Prices at most local gas stations yesterday were selling unleaded fuel at $1.33.1 a litre yesterday , this morning, all stations were selling at $1.22 a litre.
Just before the long August civic holiday local prices jumped to a high of $1.38.
Meanwhile, other communities in the north are still dealing with high prices. In Sudbury Ontario, prices this morning were locked at $ 1.33 a litre.
No word on why prices fell in Sault Ste. Marie.
Premier Doug Ford promised a 10 cent a litre drop at the pumps as part of his election campaign. Ford is dropping the carbon tax introduced by the former Liberal government, however the 10 cent drop promised by Ford has still yet to become a reality.
