Analyst Dan McTeauge of Gasbuddy.com says Saskatchewan has it pretty good with some of the lowest prices, for regular unleaded gasoline, in the country.
He says prices in Canada will start to rise as of April 1st, but it may take a couple of weeks to become evident. He says it is the switch over to summer-spec gasoline that will guarantee an across the board hike of four cents a litre in the first part of April.
“From September 15th to April 14th, Gas is permitted to be winter blend which of course is less expensive. From the 15th of April its a hard date set by the Federal standard set by the until September the 14th you have to have summer blends of gasoline to dispense which mean a non negotiable 4 cent increase.” stated McTeauge.
A litre was going for a dollar 7 in Yorkton this morning.
