I think single-quote and double-quote characters should NOT be the same. It doesn't provide readability, causes inconsistency instead. Please always use double-quote as in many other programming languages.

@gokmen They are the same from the point of view of the computer. Projects have adopted style guides for when to use which.
For example, I like to use double quotes for strings that are actual text to be displayed somewhere, and single quotes for strings that are used internally.

@deshipu I'm doing the same way for a few years. Even this could be a rule in PEP8 instead of a recommendation or project-specific rule. Now I see that these string quotes are written in different styles in every project.
