Justification

Fluctuating gas prices cannot be attributed to the Ford government, but rather global market forces responding to the pandemic. The Ford government has not acted on this promise to date, therefore the promise is not yet rated.

“Drivers in southern Ontario awoke to find gas prices up five cents on Friday morning, as stations were charging on average $1.409 /[…/] Dan McTeague, president of Canadians for Affordable Energy /[…/] points to COVID-19 as a determining factor. If cases continue to rise, /[…/] people can expect prices to hover at that current level.”

“Gas prices have plummeted in large part as a result of the novel coronavirus pandemic, which has resulted in a drop in global demand.”
