Gasoline prices in Canada have been creeping up to close to $1.30 a litre over the past week, and that has Canadians talking about changing their driving habits.
But right now, talking is about all they’re doing, said Scott Wilson of the Alberta Motor Association.
For AMA members, $1.45 a litre seems to be the tipping point at which drivers would make big changes in the way they consume gas, he said.
But Jason Toews, the co-founder of Gasbuddy.com, said he expects the high gas prices to have a big impact on summer travel plans.
He said he expects Canadian gasoline prices to average between $1.35 and $1.45 during the summer before falling to around $1.10 in September.
