Robert: Gas prices expected to rise tomorrow
I’m telling you this now so you have ample time to prepare yourself mentally for a major jump in gas prices tomorrow morning. George Murphy of the Consumer Group for Fair Gas Prices says the damage from Hurricane Harvey in the U.S. means gas is going to increase by upwards of 14 cents per litre tomorrow, the bringing the total cost for a litre of gas up to “too gosh darn expensive” dollars. Murphy adds that we’ve experienced a similar trend with gas prices in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita back in 2005.
Other fuels could be going up by about four cents a litre.
