Another gas price increase in Montreal — to 148.9

The long weekend is over, but your weekly gas price increase, for some reason, is going to happen on Tuesday.

Reports are suggesting that some stations in the Montreal area are jacking up the price of a litre of regular to just under $1.49.

That's the highest it's been in a while — since the end of May, in fact, when the price broke the $1.50-a-litre mark.

It's expected the price change will be made everywhere on the island of Montreal between now and the Wednesday morning rush hour. Typically, the price stays that high for a day or two, before it starts edging down later on in the week.
