The pain at the pumps is continuing for Metro Vancouver drivers.
Gas prices broke yet another record on Saturday, reaching 172.9 cents a litre at most stations across the region.
Prices have already broken records several times this month, beginning when they hit 164.9 cents a litre on April 7. That all-time high was replaced days later when prices reached 168.9, setting a record that only lasted a few more days until they hit 171.9.
And Metro Vancouver drivers might not see a significant drop until after the long weekend, according to the website GasBuddy.com.
Analysts recommend motorists fill up their tanks in the evenings, when stations tend to lower prices a bit before hiking them again in the morning.
