Gas prices high, could go higher

Prices have increased as much as 13 cents during the last week, according to the group. "We estimate pump prices will therefore rise an average of five cents a litre across the country". Gas prices will likely be the highest this year that they have been since 2014, said GasBuddy analyst Patrick DeHaan.
