To the frustration of drivers, gas prices at many Edmonton gas stations climbed above 100 cents a litre Thursday morning.
Many Petro-Canada, Shell and Esso stations climbed from 98 cents a litre Wednesday to 106.9 cents Thursday.
Some gas stations still had prices around 98 cents a litre Thursday morning, but according to Gas Buddy, the average price in Edmonton was 103.1 cents a litre.
It’s the highest average gas price in the city since June, when it was 108.7 cents a litre, according to the website.
