Gas Prices, TTC Closures, Weather: What You Need to Know for This Weekend (May 14-15)

This weekend will be hot and mostly sunny, and if you’re planning to go outside, there are several things to keep in mind.

GAS PRICES

driving? Well, prices at the pumps are set to hit a new high this weekend, topping the $2 a liter mark on Saturday. An additional six cents increase is expected on Sunday, according to an industry analyst.

– SATURDAY: $2.02/liter

– SUNDAY: $2.08/liter

Dan McTeague, president of Canadians for Affordable Energy, said he expects gas prices to hit $2.10 a liter by the long weekend in May. He noted that prices will remain above the $2 mark for the foreseeable future.

“I think this summer it’s going to look at another 10 cents a liter. So we’re looking at maybe a new normal between $2.10 and $2.15, with days going up to $2.20,” he said.

“High prices are here to stay.”
