It’s funny how gas can go down a penny at a time, but can jump up a lot quicker. That’s the case today in Sault Ste. Marie , where at least two gas stations jumped their prices by a full 10 cents a litre.
If you recall local motorists were treated to cheap gas for the first six weeks of the year where prices were as low as 95 cents by mid February before the cost started going the other way.
Premier Doug Ford promised to drop the carbon tax of 10 cents a litre in last Spring’s Provincial Election.
That cut has not happened yet and in two weeks time the Federal Carbon Tax will be added to the cost of fuel. Prices as of April 1 will just another 4.5 cents a litre .
