Even with a six-cent a litre gas hike on Thursday, drivers in Oakville, Burlington, Milton and Halton Hills should still hit the gas pumps if they need fuel.

That’s because it will cost you more on Friday.

After falling five cents a litre on Wednesday and then jumping six cents Thursday, prices are expected to go up another five cents a litre tomorrow.

“If this doesn’t convince you to fill up today, will a five cent a litre increase on Friday (on top of Thursday’s 6 cent hike) do the trick?,” gas price analyst Dan McTeague said on Twitter.

Gas prices in Oakville and Halton Region are expected to climb to $1.73.9. Premium gas will also go up five cents a litre and will cost you $2.03.9 cents.


The biggest gas price hike in the province and across Canada will be in Cornwall where it’s going up eight cents to $1.70.9 a litre.

If you live in New Brunswick, prices will actually fall. The cost of gas per litre will be down 3.7 cents in both Moncton and St. John to $1.66.2.

You’ll find the cheapest gas in the country on Friday in Calgary, where despite rising by five cents it will still cost you $1.61.9 a litre.
