The explosion at the Irving Oil refinery in Saint John, New Brunswick on Monday has some wondering if that means an increase in gas is coming for Saskatchewan drivers
Dan McTeague with Gasbuddy.com says the answer is no.
“Absolutely not. The refinery saw damage to its diesel production unit and while it looked quite scary, the fact is it won’t affect gasoline supply.” McTeague said. ” What we watch and what you should watch is activity in the US Midwest. While the refinery in Regina and the ones in Edmonton can cause local problems, it is that market that drives the price.
McTeague adds there is a surplus of gasoline in the US Midwest right now and that should mean a small drop before the weekend hits. He believes most stations in Regina will be just under $1.20 a litre by Friday.
