So TGPT is saying we might see a 1 cent decrease for Friday if Esso's wins the street. If Petro Canada gets their way we could be up to 140.5

It is 137.9 now in almost everywhere in Mississauga! I think this is the all-time high!
Costco sells for 128.9 regular, 138.9 premium.

Total rip off at the pumps this am (Saturday) I can only imagine that the boys at the 2 big oil companies Esso and Suncor (PetroCanda, Pioneer, Husky) are getting an early start on collecting our Easter Eggs.

680 News says a drop of 1.1 cents on Wednesday. Their final price is incorrect. They say 131.9 but it should be 131.8

A good idea Biff! I bought over 500 domestic stamps with the "P" when they sold for 63 cents. I save 22 cents every time I mail a domestic letter. I will save over $120 by the time I use them up. lol

Actually Tramguy - TGPT predicted an increase to $ 132.6 for Sunday. The West of Toronto is charging that today. To the east its $ 132.9. Mark these words... the east will soon revert to the $132.6 .... in about an hour or two !!!

Glad both 680 News and TGPT were wrong in their price for today and we only had a two cent increase instead of 2.4! By midnight we should know Sunday's price.

That's weird because i still see a "hold" for Monday and a "rise" for Sunday.
TGPT is saying on their homepage that price will "rise" tomorrow, Sunday April 6.

TGPT changed to n/c last night, but it looks like Esso is no longer leading the charge in the GTA, Shell and Petro Canada seem to be moving things about

They have posted only a .4 cent drop to $ 131.5. Could it have something to do with the gas station increasing their take ? I hope 680 is correct as higher prices arent a good thing for any of us

No early alert from TGPT but 680 News, saying drop of 1.5 cents from 131.9 to 130.4 on Wednesday. All TGPT said on their site was a price drop. They say another drop on Thursday.

Parkland Industries is an Alberta based refiner/wholesaler. It operates under the Cango banner in Ontrio and FasGas in some places around hamilton and the West. They are increasingly the middleman to retailers of all brands and have a lot to do with pricing as the big boys are getting out of the retail business management . Little wonder -- all those years of undercutting the indies and with the arrival of the big box stores, the real money is in pipelining, crude exploration/production and a little refining.

Sorry Patman - they were right -- this morniong ... starting at midnight last night all Toronto stations went to $ 132.2, however after 12 noon today the prices all dropped .3 cents to $ 131.9 from Brlington to pickering to Bradford. Its clear the Gods at Esso and their allies at Parkland (look it up folks) arent amused with TGPT. This is a real battle with David fighting Goliath ..... You better hope TGPT wins ....

TGPT posted on their facebook tonight that Toronto's gas stations have just treated themselves to another half cent increase of their take. That brings their retail grab to 8 cents alitre and with tax, explains why TGPT reported $ 131.2 for today (Sat)when by noon all had jumped to $ 131.9. TGPT is also predicting $ 132.2 for Sunday.
