Gas prices, TTC closures, weather: what you need to know for this weekend (May 14-15)

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

GAS PRICES

The driving? Well, prices at the pumps will hit a new record this weekend, surpassing $2 a liter on Saturday. An analyst expects an additional increase of six cents on Sunday.

– SATURDAY: $2.02/litre

– SUNDAY: $2.08/litre

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

“I think it’s going to cost another 10 cents a liter this summer. So we may be looking for a new norm of $2.10 to $2.15, with days going to $2.20,” he said. .

“High prices are here to stay.”
