This is the highest price reported in Montreal since it spiked in June 2014. While the price sits above the national average, parts of B.C. have been reporting prices over $1.60/L in recent weeks.

If the current spike-and-dip trend continues, drivers should wait until later in the week to fill up their cars before the next price hike.
