Price of gas set to jump a nickel

The price of gas is taking a pretty hefty jump of about 5 cents a litre.

Some stations are selling a litre of regular for 147.4.

A hike at some stations in the afternoon often indicates that prices will probably go up right across the city by tomorrow morning.

    5cents a litre ,which equals 22 1/2 cents an imperial gallon or about 18.6 cents a US gallon .We are ripped off again . I listen to many US news stations . Oftentimes we hear about gas pump prices changes in the US . The most recent one stating that gas prices this week "spiked by " 4 cents a gallon in several states . Imagine the vehement protests in the US that would come from users and politicians if an 18 -20 cent per gallon increase was announced overnight .
    Here in Canada , including Quebec we do nothing .Isn't about time that some affirmative action be taken by Canadain users and politicians against such
    price increases/gouging .

      @brian Who do you think some of the biggest supporters of the conversion to metric were?

      Oil Companies.

      Actually, a 5 cent / litre hike is a "bargain". It's normally 10.
