Surprise surprise, gas prices in Montreal are still on the rise!

On Thursday, April 21, the average price for fuel in Montreal is 186.9 cents/L, which is up 5.1 cents/L since yesterday.

And it's not just a thing in Montreal, the average gas price in the whole province is also continuing to increase, with an average today of 187.6 cents/L. Meanwhile, yesterday's average was 184.2 cents/L, so it seems like it's still going up day by day.

And to give you an even better picture of its continuous increase, Quebec's average gas price last week was 172.2 cents/L.

Depending on where you live, if you're looking to save a little money on gas, you may need to drive outside of the city you're in to do so... The irony.

Here's a look at where gas is the least and most expensive in Quebec right now, according to CAA National.

These cities in Quebec currently have the highest gas prices:

  • Rimouski (192.4 cents),
  • Blainville (190.9 cents),
  • Brossard (190.9 cents),
  • Repentigny (190.9 cents),
  • Saint-Eustache (190.9 cents),
  • Drummondville (189.9 cents),
  • Sherbrooke (189.9 cents), and
  • Trois-Rivières (189.4 cents).

The average price of gas in these cities is close to the provincial average price:

  • Gaspé (187.2 cents),
  • Montreal (186.9 cents),
  • Alma (186.1 cents),
  • Laval (185.4 cents),
  • Saint-Hyacinthe (185.2 cents),
  • Quebec City (185.1 cents), and
  • Matane (184.9 cents).

If you want to save some serious cash on gas, you're going to need to venture to one of the following cities:

  • Granby (183.9 cents),
  • Longueuil (183.9 cents),
  • Rivière-du-Loup (181.7 cents),
  • Lévis (181.3 cents),
  • Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu (180.9 cents),
  • Vaudreuil-Dorion (180. 8 cents),
  • Magog (179.9 cents),
  • Saint-Jérome (179.5 cents),
  • Val-d'Or (176.1 cents),
  • Rouyn-Noranda (175.9 cents),
  • Gatineau (175.7 cents),
  • Shawinigan (174.9 cents),
  • Sept-Iles (174.2 cents), and
  • Chicoutimi (161.4 cents).
Since it doesn't seem like gas prices are going down anytime soon, I guess we'll all be taking the bus and metro this summer.

The average gas prices listed above were last updated on April 21, 2022 at 4 a.m by CAA National but are subject to change.
