Airdrie's gas prices have increased right before the weekend.

Across the city, most gas stations have seen an eight-cent jump in the past day, from $1.639/litre to around $1.71 for regular gas.

As of Friday morning, Calgary gas prices ranged from $1.51 at Costco (Buffalo Run Blvd) to $1.63 at other gas stations. 

But Airdronians should count themselves lucky they are not filling up in Vancouver this morning. Gas prices on the west coast cost over two dollars a litre, while gas prices on the east coast in cities like Fredericton are also approaching the two-dollar mark.
