Another week of topsy turvy gas prices to report. At the beginning of the week gas had dropped to 107.4 cents a litre. But yesterday saw a 10 cent jump, with gas hitting 117.9 cents a litre. In mid January it was at just under the 80 cent mark.
Of course if you looked at the right stations it seemed as if the price of gas was zero cents a litre for part of the week. Petro Canada stations had their pumps shut down due to lack of fuel deliveries, the result of problems at Suncor's Edmonton refinery So their gas price signs displayed a price of zero cents a litre. I bet at least one driver tried to fill up at one of those stations, thinking he could actually get free gas.
