As of mid-morning, there was still no local filling station evidence, of a gasoline price hike, following survey confirmation yesterday of a seven cents a litre national average increase, in the past week.

According to the new sixty-city cross-Canada monitor of MJ Ervin and Associates, the nation-wide average is up, to 78 point seven cents.

However, that’s still 29 cents a liter less, than it was this time last January.
