Analyst Dan McTeague, with the group Canadians for Affordable Energy, says the substantial price drop is a direct result of pessimism regarding the global economy.

“More importantly it might take a bit of pressure off inflation but it is a fleeting price that can’t remain this low forever, not that we don’t want low gas prices,” said Dan McTeague, Canadians for Affordable Energy’s president.

McTeague said there could be a drop in price of another cent on Saturday.
