Looks like the we might be paying higher energy prices this winter.
In its Winter Energy Outlook, the National Energy Board says Canadians will pay higher prices when filling up their cars and heating their homes this season.
The report blames the spike in gasoline prices on closures of U.S. refineries due to Hurricane Sandy, as well as the higher demand causing natural gas prices to spike.
Even heating oils will cost more this winter.
Considering already stagnant wages, this report comes at a bad time for most Canadian families.
Here’s to hoping that that we have a mild winter this year.
