Gas prices hit record high

The cost of driving just hit an all-time high in Metro Vancouver.

Drivers woke up to prices as high as 157.9 cents a litre on Monday.

Surrey appears to be the last holdout for cheaper gas, with prices averaging 154.9 cents, according to gasbuddy.com.

Prices in Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, Coquitlam and New Westminster were all at 157.9, although there were a few holdout stations several cents lower.

The price of fuel spiked last month to 156.9 cents a litre, as refineries in B.C. and Washington state were closed for repairs. Alberta's threat to reduce oil shipments to B.C. is also fanning fears of outrageous gas prices this summer.

Gasbuddy's Dan McTeague predicts prices could top $1.60 a litre.
