20080911/油价一定是疯了,隔夜将狂涨13分

捷克佳/按照Pickering-Scarborough East选区国会议员Dan McTeague 的预测,12日的汽油价格将在凌晨时分跳涨12.9分,于是乎,本地电台不断发出消息,希望人们能够加满油箱。真是奇怪!国际市场的原油期货价格已经回落至百元附近,近期也没有过于严重的自然灾害,夏季旅游高频使用汽油的月份也已经过去,真是难以找到令人信服的涨价理由。但油商总会为高额的垄断价格找到借口。印象中,这是一日涨幅最大的一次。

    马上加油:大多市汽油价格明天上升13仙

    (加拿大新闻商业网www.newnews.ca 9月11日讯)如果你坐驾的油缸快空了,那就赶快去加油,千万别犹豫,因为过了今晚12点,大多伦多地区汽油价格将大幅上升,每公升上涨13仙,达到每公升1.36元。

    这是近几个月来单日最大升幅。自由党国会议员、油价观察员 Dan McTeague对大家的忠告是,立即加油别延误。

    飓风袭击美国东南沿岸是此次油价大幅上升的主要原因,几大石油公司包括: Exxon、 Mobile 和 Valero的生产能力都受到不同程度的损坏,供应减少是加油上升的直接原因,而美国油价大幅上升又影响到加拿大油价随之上升。

    PUMP SHOCK
    Gas prices jump by 12.9 cents

    Motorists are in for a rude shock this morning as they pull into gas stations across the GTA to fill ‘er up: a massive overnight hike in pump prices.

    The jump – 12.9 cents a litre, and more outside the GTA – is one of the highest single-step price hikes in recent memory, blamed by oil refiners on supply uncertainties posed by Hurricane Ike as it rampages through the Gulf of Mexico.

    “Canadians are going to get a sock in the chin,” said Liberal MP Dan McTeague, who has built up a reputation for forecasting gas price hikes.

    McTeague said he expects an average price of around $1.36.6 in the GTA, adding that’s much better than Vancouver, where prices are expected to soar above $1.46.

    Many drivers weren’t waiting for prices to climb as they filled up before midnight.

    In Mississauga, drivers lining up for gas backed up major roadways, including Mavis and Burnhamthorpe Rds. Whitby resident Don Dutton said the situation was “just crazy” east of Toronto.

    “It was probably eight to 10 minutes getting into the pump,” he said. “Getting in and out, people were sort of pushing and jockeying.”

    Mearey Russell waited 15 minutes to get into an Esso at Yonge St. and Steeles Ave. W. only to find her pump had run out of gas.

    And there were stations that didn’t wait until midnight.

    At 8:10 p.m., a TorontoGasPrices.com user reported seeing regular gas at $1.37.0, at Woodbine and 14th Aves. in Markham.

    The effect of the overnight price hikes wasn’t expected to be uniform across the country, primarily due to provincial taxes. McTeague said he expected Ottawa would likely be least hit, predicting pump prices there of about $1.32 a litre.

    The jump in price is being blamed on Hurricane Ike, which is expected to make landfall somewhere along the U.S. Gulf Coast as a Category 3 hurricane later this evening or early tomorrow morning.

    Several refineries and gas producers in Mexico and Texas shut down as a precaution yesterday.

    On July 11, McTeague said crude jumped to $147 a barrel, bringing the average price up to $1.36.4 per litre in the GTA.

    But in this case, he said, there’s no correlation between the price of crude and the jump in prices.

    On Wednesday, OPEC reported that the price per barrel dropped to $96.80 (U.S.), he said, yet motorists were still paying more yesterday.

    After the devastation Katrina left behind in August 2005, prices went up about 16 cents per litre, he said.

    But that increase came after Katrina hit, while this hike came in anticipation of Ike, “without evidence of any damage.”

    But if Ike leaves behind a trail of chaos, McTeague said, worse may be in store.

    “They’ve already been ramping up the price,” he said. “If this hurricane does the devastation anywhere similar to Katrina as far as the refineries and gas production is concerned, it’ll be a lot worse.”

    McTeague attributed the hike to market manipulation, not future woes. “It has nothing to do with weather,” he said.

    Representatives from the major oil companies were not available for comment last night.
