There's usually a painful grimace when we spot gas signs reading $1.36 a litre in Saskatchewan.
Now, the federal government claims they'll be investigating those high prices through a parliamentary committee. Industry Minister Tony Clement says he'll be grilling distributors and retailers on their pricing methods.
But the Ruth Robinson, from the Consumer Association of Saskastchewan, says this isn't the first time the government has looked into pricing - and found nothing wrong.
It appears as though the rise in gas prices has made its way to Saskatchewan.

Some businesses have decided not to sell them anymore since the system has gone online. Pokey's Tackle Shop made that decision after estimating it would take $1600 for them to purchase the equipment to do it. Owner Greg Prokopetz says he only makes $1 on each license sold at $30 each.

Regina Mayor Michael Fougere is pledging that action will be taken after this week's two day housing summit.
Two days of talks presented local politicians, developers, and builders with a host of new ideas to consider to improve Regina's abysmal one per cent rental housing vacancy rate. They ranged from suggestions for different housing forms, like the use of pocket suites and shipping container units, to forming different kinds of partnerships with charitable organizations and the private sector.
With police in Ontario trying to figure out why exactly Tim Bosma was killed after men came to test drive a truck he posted for sale online, others are considering how to stay safe when creating and responding to such online advertising.
