Patrick DeHaan, head of Petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, said that Canadian driving habits requires filling up every week or so, which makes fuel a pricey expense over the course of an entire year.
“By buying gas on the cheapest day instead of the most expensive day of the week, Canadians can collectively bring down their expenses by timing their purchases to the lowest price day of the week – a simple yet noticeable change in behaviour that can add up.”
A study published by GasBuddy on December 17, 2019 found that in from the period of January 1 – December 3 of this year, Tuesdays offered the lowest average prices in 5 of the 10 provinces, including Saskatchewan. With Mondays and Fridays having the highest average prices.
GasBuddy says also that it pays to shop around and warns that speeding is expensive, as even a change from 100 kilometres per hour to 120 will reduce fuel consumption by as much as 15 percent.
Gas Prices this past Tuesday on Christmas Eve were an average 111.9 cents per litre in Swift Current. That is .04 cents higher than the provincial average, and up .09 cents from last year’s average at this time.
