The price to fill up a tank of gasoline has never been higher in Canada, and experts say there’s little reason to expect relief any time soon.

The price of a litre of gasoline at the retail level has hit record highs in many Canadian markets this week, with prices under $1.50 per litre becoming harder to find even in oil-rich Alberta. Meanwhile some drivers in British Columbia and Newfoundland and Labrador are dealing with the eye-watering figure of more than $2 per litre for the first time.

Dan McTeague, president of Canadians For Affordable Energy, says the average price of a litre of gasoline in Canada’s biggest market, the Greater Toronto Area, hit $1.67 per litre on Wednesday, the highest level it’s ever been. And he expects even more to come.

Yes they certain are flying up there. But I understand. Israel murdered all those children as part of their violent racial cleansing. So we were just forced to pay the price of sanctioning –

Oh wait, Russia? Oh right, sorry. For a second I thought that we were going through economic hardship in order to make the world a better place. Instead it’s a feeble and whiny attempt to flail around and pretend to be doing something while Vladimir Putin does whatever the fuck he wants. But of course, we pay the price for this signally bullshit.

That’s bad news for drivers who are still trying to process prices where they are now. Filling up at just shy of $1.70 per litre in Toronto on Thursday, Lorenzo Duran told CBC News that he’s planning his trips more efficiently now, trying to squeeze as much as he can out of every tank.

“I’ve got to start walking,” he joked.

And they’re not kidding when they say the prices are spiking. Over $2/L. That’s unfathomable. I can remember when gas was half that.

But it’s so nice to see that our dearly, beloved “leaders,” are suffering through this with us.
