Drivers across Saskatchewan have been enjoying lower gas prices this summer, but that could soon change.
GasBuddy.com predicted Thursday there will be a gas price surge in Calgary, Edmonton, Regina and Saskatoon sometime in the coming days.
“I would think that in Regina, for instance, 93 cents a litre (will be) going up to 98 cents a litre, about a five-cent increase,” said Dan McTeague, senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy.com.
Gas prices in Saskatoon and Regina have been in the low 90 cent per litre range for most of the summer.
McTeague said that’s about the same price retailers are paying in order to buy the gasoline.
“They do eventually have to come up for air and offer gasoline at a higher price,” McTeague said.
Drivers in Edmonton, who have been paying about 88 cents a litre, could see a 10 cent price jump for a litre of regular.
