Gas prices in the Toronto area are expected to drop even further on Saturday, to the lowest price seen since late February, one industry analyst says.

Dan McTeague, president of Canadians for Affordable Energy, told Global News gas prices in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area are expected to drop six cents on Friday to 167.9 cents per litre.

McTeague said prices will fall another eight cents on Saturday, to 159.9 cents per litre, marking the lowest price since Feb. 27.
