Gas prices on the rise in Saskatchewan due to Hurricane Harvey

Northern Ireland consumers and businesses have been warned of higher gas prices

GasBuddy.com's senior petroleum analyst Dan McTeague issued a warning to drivers on Friday afternoon, noting the hike is on top of the five cent increase we're seeing today.

The price at the pump rose Thursday night in Montreal for a second time in three days, reaching an average of almost $1.35 per litre of regular fuel by Friday morning.

He also forecast a six-cent spike in gas prices in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, to $1.459 per litre.

Gasoline prices are expected to drop two cents a litre in the GTA on Sunday.

Super Eagles will qualify for Russian Federation 2018 ―Dalung
The team seems not to have lost yet, but two draws 1: 1 with Algeria and Zambia brought only 2 points to the team's box. At home Nigeria does not lose in the selections for the World Cup for 22 matches in a row - 19 wins and 3 draws.

A key pipeline carrying oil from the gulf coast to the eastern seaboard shut down on Thursday, raising the possibility of gas shortages in the USA southeast, mid-Atlantic and northeast, Nasdaq.com reports.

Montreal, where the Gazette reports gas prices have already spiked by 19 cents per litre this week to $1.35, could see a similar nine-cent hike on Saturday, McTeague predicted.

That, in turn, would reduce supplies and drive up prices in Western Canada.

"Until we get engineers into the refineries to assess the damage it's all speculation", he said.

USA benchmark oil prices that fell below US$46 per barrel on Wednesday due to less demand from refineries have recovered to more than US$47 per barrel.

"This is normally the time where refineries go into scheduled maintenance, but with all these refineries going into what I'll call 'unscheduled maintenance, ' it will put pressure on the ones still running to go on longer", Mr. McKnight said.

And the price difference is even more pronounced off Montreal island, particularly on the South Shore, the Laurentians, the Gatineau area and eastern Quebec. As of Friday, most pumps sat around 110 cents a litre for regular fuel in the Queen City.

"If you're driving with 75 litres and you're going to be travelling this weekend, the increase could be at least $7 or $8" extra to fill up, he said.
