Gas prices in Montreal are already sky-high and they're about to shoot up even further, which could have local motorists fuming. Monitoring site Gas Wizard predicts the cost of unleaded will hit $2.24 per litre on Saturday. That's one-cent higher than the record-breaking $2.23 per litre seen at stations across the city just five days ago and experts warn costs will continue to rise.

In one week, Gas Wizard reports prices at the pump have gone up 11 cents per litre from the $2.10 that motorists saw last Friday. That puts Montreal just 10 cents behind the price per litre at Vancouver pumps ($2.34), which have consistently led the country in most expensive rates.

Montreal gas prices hit a record high this weekend, which carried into the start of the new week. Gas stations are charging $2.15 per litre on average for the second consecutive day. CAA-Quebec advises not filling up until prices drop by around five cents.

If you do need to get gas, price monitoring site Gas Buddy reports the cheapest petrol in the greater Montreal area is being sold at the Harnois in Kahnawake, where unleaded is going for $1.97 per litre. The Costco in Anjou comes in a close second, keeping the rate for regular at $1.99 per litre.

Montrealers will see another bump in pump prices this weekend, one that could push the average cost for a litre of gas to a yearly high. Projections by Gas Wizard show rates spiking to $210.9 cents for regular, $223.9 cents for premium, and $243.9 cents for diesel by Saturday. With average prices right now marked at $203.9 cents per litre, below today's expected cost of $205.9, CAA Quebec suggests filling up as soon as possible.

The weekend fuel forecast outpaces the highest rate recorded in Quebec over the past month, which hit $205.9 cents per litre on Wednesday. Montreal's price peak hit $204.9 cents per litre and costs haven't exceeded that amount in the past year.
