News: Canadian gas prices may pass $1.30/L ($4.93/US gal) in months with $100 oil

Front page news today...

"the price at the pump could jump by as much as 25 cents a litre. Others put the potential increase even higher."

Quote:
“If crude oil stays over $100 per barrel, this summer we could see $1.50-per-litre gas ($5.69/US gal.),” said Jason Toews, cofounder of gasbuddy.com.


“This hurts, big-time,” said Gurminder Khandura as he gassed up his taxi at a Vancouver station where gas was selling for 106.9 cents a litre ($4.05/US gal). “By the time you finish a shift and fill up, you don't have much left.”

It'd make a nice souvenir, I guess. Plus he can sell it later on eBay when the price hits $110.
