The price of gas in Montreal has taken a big jump.
Gas prices at some stations in town have jumped as much a dime per litre to reach 152.4 — just a cent away from the all-time record high for gas prices in Montreal.
According to the gas price monitoring site Essence Montréal, the record high of 153.4 was set on Sept. 11, 2012.
A change at some stations in the afternoon usually means a more widespread change the following morning.
Experts are saying the recent spike in violence in Iraq is helping drive gas prices up — and it might not be done rising yet.
