Temperatures go down and gas goes up

Yesterday wasn’t a great day all around. After such a beautiful weekend, there was heavy rain and freezing rain on Monday, and then colder temperatures brought the snow back.

As temperatures dropped, gas prices rose just before Easter Weekend. At 4 p.m. gas was 119.9, By 4:30 it had risen to 121.9.

In the Sault you may be able to shop around; The PetroCanada on Great Northern is reported as offering gas at 110.5, and the highest is 122.9.

Gas in White River is 129.9

In looking into why gas prices rise in the spring. Apparently, the summer blend is different than the winter. The winter blend evaporates easier whereas the summer blend evaporates less to help reduce admissions. Summer-blend is also more expensive to make.
