Gas prices in Winnipeg have soared up to 135.9 cents per litre at most stations, which is 14 cents higher than this time last year.

The wholesale price of gasoline in Winnipeg is currently at 96 cents per litre, so there is a huge retail margin at 135. It’s fully expected that prices should drop back down to earth is about 3 to 4 weeks. Until then, perhaps half a tank sessions will do for now.
