With some Alberta PetroCanada stations empty Suncor monitors situation in Saskatchewan Manitoba

first_imgAs yellow tape surrounds the pumps at multiple Calgary and Edmonton Petro-Canada gas stations, Suncor is also tracking the situation across the Prairies.“We are monitoring Manitoba and Saskatchewan,” Suncor spokesperson Nicole Fisher said. “But right now, the sites are just Alberta.”The cause for the fuel shortage stems from seasonal maintenance, and Fisher said while they do plan to have supply on hand, in this case, there’s a reduced inventory level.“I don’t have a timeline,” she said about when the stations could come back online. “Just doing everything we can to source additional supplies as soon as possible.”Senior Petroleum Analyst with gasbuddy.com Dan McTeague said the maintenance is at a major Suncor facility in Edmonton.“I would expect Petro-Can’s situation, although it is noticeable, may very well come back into align by this time next week,” he said. “I suspect it may be very close to completing their work.”It isn’t exactly clear how many stations are shut down, but as of Thursday afternoon, some closed stations in Calgary include the ones in Bridgeland, Brentwood, Crescent Heights and Sundance.McTeague suspects some hiked prices coming soon.“Don’t hesitate, if you can see gasoline under $1.29 take it up,” he said.last_img read more
