In a remarkable turn of events, I have just been mailed a list of future gas prices in the Victoria area.
This is truely incredible. It appears to have come from an industry insider… an obviously confidential document… describing sceduled price increases for the Victoria area right down to the decimal point…
Wow. Check this out readers:
May 25, 2007 – 131.5 / litre regular
May 31, 2007 – 134.9 / litre regular
June 7, 2007 – 136.9 / litre regular
June 21, 2007 – 142.5 / litre regular
Geepers. I could go on… but it would not be in my best interest to reveal more… this document uncovers what the gas prices in Victoria will be through the summer right into September.
I would be putting my life in danger by telling you what the gas price will be in the first week of September.
On a more serious note… CAA insiders claim that these all too obvious pre-long-weekend gas price increases are more than a little suspicious.
Cathy Hay, senior gasoline market analyst at MJ Ervin and Associates in Calgary, said most gasoline markets are pretty close to peak prices and the notion that gas prices jump prior to a long weekend is an urban myth.
An urban myth huh? Right..
