Premium Price for Gas in Montreal… Regardless!

As the price of crude oil plummets below $50/barrel, Montreal gas consumers all still paying the price. Have you ever wondered why Quebecers will NEVER get a ‘break’ on gas prices?

A couple months back, we were stuck in a bad situation when prices sky rocketed to almost $1.50/litre. Now, that price of oil is dropping….and guess what? …. We are still paying the highest across Canada.

I’ve been researching the subject and asking myself a lot of questions. In conclusion, whether the price of crude oil rises or drops to below $10 per barrel, us Montrealers will always pay the premium price. As long a we reside in the province of Quebec, we will never catch a ‘break’ on consumer goods.

After researching, here are some facts I have obtained from news articles and economics “people”

The blame ….

  1. Higher Taxes
  2. A week Canadian Dollar
  3. Seasonal Effects
  4. Rising Taxes

“On average, the price in Montreal without taxes is less than in Toronto or in Calgary for example,” said Sonia Marcotte, president and CEO of the Quebec Association Of Independent Petroleum Marketers.
