Gas Prices Jump
Prince George, B.C. – There is a full 14 cent a litre difference between the lowest and highest price for regular unleaded gas in Prince George.
The price hike happened over the last 24 hours, with Costco remaining the cheapest in town at $1.139. Superstore is close behind at $1.149, but other stations in town are now at $1.279.
The hike is hard to explain as the price of oil was as low as $42.52 US early in the day. That mark is less than half of what it was a year ago when it was $97.59 US a barrel.
According to Gas Buddy.com, the average price in B.C. is $1.28 a litre, but that is still 10 cents a litre lower than it was this time a year ago.
