Gas prices in Ontario are expected to jump by 11 cents over the next two days.
That’s according to Dan McTeague, president of Canadians for Affordable Energy.
In an email to Global News, McTeague said gas prices are expected to rise in much of the province by six cents on Thursday, and another five cents on Friday.
He said this will push gas prices up from 162.9 cents per litre on Wednesday to 173.9 cents per litre by Friday.
In a tweet Wednesday morning, McTeague said people should “fill up today.”
According to McTeague, the price increase will be seen in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area, Hamilton, London, Ottawa, Kitchener, Barrie, Windsor and Niagara.
Prices are also expected to rise to 175.9 cents per litre for Montreal, McTeague said.
According to GasWizard.ca, diesel prices are also expected to rise by seven cents on Thursday, pushing prices to 187.9 cents per litre in Toronto.
