Alberta to create plan addressing rising gasoline price: Kenney
Calgary Herald: 'Kenney said he has directed the ministers of energy and finance to work over the weekend to create a plan that will assist Albertans paying for gasoline. The announcement comes as prices across the province have soared with some pumps in Calgary showing costs as high as 156.9 cents per litre on Friday.
'“We all know that gas prices go up and down. We’re all used to that and sometimes we get ticked off when they go up and then less agitated when they go down and that’s just a normal market reality,” said Kenney. “But, what we’re experiencing right now is not normal.”
'Kenney said that when they released last week’s provincial budget they were expecting gas prices around $70 a barrel but as of this week those prices have rose to over $100 a barrel. The premier said that as the province rakes in more money off those increased prices, he wants to be able to pass some savings onto Albertans.'
