Another gas price hike in Montreal

If the gas tank is running low, you may want to consider topping up.

Essence Montreal reports that some gas stations in Montreal have raised their prices to $1.31 for a litre of regular.  That is up from $1.24 and is actually the second increase at the pump this week.

Gas prices have jumped close to 20 cents since Monday night.

The hike is blamed on the rebounding price of crude and the low Canadian dollar.
