Soon enough, school will be out and road trippers will be, well, road tripping. But at a higher cost in fuel than last year, it seems.
We’re looking at record-breaking gas prices for spring across Canada—in some cases 12- to 15-per-cent increases—and cost per litre could reach $1.50 in the heat of summer. Ouch.
Currently, average prices at the pump are 7 cents higher than the average a year ago.
In the US, which is feeling the burn of oil prices even more acutely at the moment, surveyed travellers said higher prices would curb their travel plans: 44 per cent claimed it would cause them to take fewer trips.
