Gas price continues rise

The price at the pump for a litre of gas in the region continues its steady climb. Prices have trended upward since the end of March after their rapid and steep drop at the start of the COVID-19 emergency measures in Ontario. 

In the region, bargain sellers on Monday evening were pricing their regular unleaded at an average of $1.02/L.
