Winnipeg, Manitoba – We can expect to pay more at the pump in 2017, according to a petroleum analyst.

Dan McTeague from GasBuddy.com has said the combination of OPEC production cuts and Carbon Pricing will increase the cost of energy.

According to McTeague, gas won’t be the only thing going up. Because the cost of energy is connected with everything in the economy, prices for groceries can be expected to increase as well.

    Is there ANY good news? (like President Trump being impeached, Mayor Bowman being fired)

  • C.R. Koss says:

    The current price gouge is being blamed by McTeague on problems at American refineries. If this is true, then why aren’t US prices going through the roof. A few weeks ago in Grand Forks, gas was selling for around $.56 litre. The last time gas in Winnipeg was over $1.00 litre, oil was selling for over $100.00 barrel. Today it is half of that. In Winnnipeg, and in Canada, the gas sellers gouge us because they can. There is no other rational explanation.

    When the prices for oil goes up and this causes everything else to go up, the fixed income family wage doesn’t go up so therefore less money is being spent on gas not food. You don’t go out driving as often as you used to, and tighten the budget on gas.
