Don't expect to get a break a the pumps anytime soon. Recent spikes in gas prices have the average price in St.Thomas about $1.23 today. McMaster University Professor Marvin Ryder says a number of small factors have contributed to the dramatic increase.
Prices across Ontario have gone up about 10-15 cents since the start of last week. They have since evened out this week. Ryder says unfortunately, it looks like this will not just be a 1 week spike and he expects prices will remain high for the rest of the summer.
