Heading into the long weekend, you might be going to your cottage or for a road trip down the 401.

Which means you have to fill up your tank as gas prices rise.

On the provincial campaign trail, provincial leaders were asked what they'd do to tackle rising prices if elected.

Premier Kathleen Wynne points out she didn't increase the price when she could have, pointing to not raising the gas tax. Wynne's referring to a way to pay for transit expansion in the GTA and infrastructure projects in other parts of Ontario.

She says there isn't much she can do about what the industry dictates.
 
Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak says he wants to get a handle on that by making sure the Federal Competition Bureau is doing its job.  

Hudak says he'll be there to make sure commuters aren't being gouged.

NDP leader Andrea Horwath says her party is prepared to look at making gas prices more stable in the province.
