On Dec. 14, McTeague tweeted that prices “will rise from 131.9 cts/l to 137.9 at their highest in MetroVan,” on Saturday. As such, he advised that residents heed the warning and fill up their tanks before Saturday. Further, he added that the prices would climb even higher on Sunday.

McTeague noted that the six-cent-per-litre increase would increase overnight on Saturday. He stated that the Lower Mainland would see, “a record price HIKE overnight of 11 CENTS/LITRE for Sunday. Average will climb from 137.9 to 148.9 cts/l and builds on today’s 6 cent a litre increase we predicted Thursday.”

While the prices are still high, McTeague predicts that the prices will drop after Wednesday. As a result, he advises that drivers wait until Thursday to fill up their tanks.
