Fuel costs in Edmonton and Calgary have simply hit file highs
Gas prices in Edmonton and Calgary hit record highs on Friday as summer trips across the province are in full swing.
The average price of fuel rose to 1.39 cents / liter in Edmonton, while it was imported to 1.41 cents / liter in Calgary.
“It’s a record for Edmonton and Calgary,” said Dan McTeague, president of Canadians for Affordable Energy.
According to McTeague, the price hike is the result of a problem at an Edmonton refinery coupled with a Calgary problem at a terminal that can lead to a short-term shortage.
“It will likely take a week for prices to drop only to repeat in the not-too-distant future,” added McTeague.
“All of this price pressures are converging and creating a real mess for drivers across the region,” said Mcteague.
“We’re talking record prices in Alberta, Saskatchewan and the lower mainland of British Columbia. The prices can’t go anywhere except upwards. ”The customer review has been automatically translated from German.
