Gas prices spike in London to $131.9/L

Northern Ireland consumers and businesses have been warned of higher gas prices

Prices already jumped almost 10 cents in some places since Harvey roared ashore in Texas a week ago.

On Friday morning, GasBuddy posted prices of $1.10 a litre in Ottawa, less than $1.08 a litre in Toronto and less than 97 cents a litre in Calgary.

Prices are expected to remain high until refineries resume normal operation, the timing of which is still unknown.

Gasbuddy.com reported a two-cent hike in the average Canadian price on Friday to nearly $1.18 per litre.

Dan McTeague, a senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.com, said gas shortages could become a reality for many parts of the United States next week. With this, two of the largest pipelines in the U.S. - the Colonial Pipeline, which feeds much of the Northeast U.S., and the Explorer Pipeline, which runs from Texas to Chicago - have signalled that they're severely limiting throughput due to a lack of product to transport, raising the possibility of shortages. Analysts expect a hike of around 5 cents by Friday evening, followed by a further jump of 9 cents on Saturday.

The price of gas is spiking in Montreal as the long weekend approaches.

But, as the votes polled in the booths of the slum clusters started coming into the picture, the AAP widened its margin. On Monday, the Congress led in the first seven rounds of counting, winning in the rural parts of the constituency.

The uncertainty about gasoline production could stretch into a couple of weeks, he said.

In Western Canada this won't affect gas prices as much.

"Some of the refineries in Canada are going through fall maintenance, and that means we just don't have any capacity".

On Thursday in NY, the price of a barrel of crude oil for delivery in October rose USA $1.27 at closing, to United States $47.23.

"We don't produce enough gasoline to allow even a small amount to be siphoned off or purchased by other parties south of the border, so they raise prices to ensure that gasoline prices wholesale are not attractive", he said.

According to McTeague, people in Saskatchewan should expect to see gas prices increase another five to seven cents per litre throughout the weekend.
