THOMPSON-OKANAGAN - After weeks of gas prices hovering in the $.90 per litre range, stations across the Interior have been slowly raising their prices over the last couple days. And the trend is not forecast to change any time soon.
Residents of Kamloops are finding better deals at some pumps than most B.C. cities today, but are still faced with a seven cent hike at many stations, with 102.9 cents per litre now the going rate. According to Gas Buddy, an online consumer reporting tool, the Costco on Versatile Drive is still charging only 92.9 cents per litre though.
You can still get gas for around 97 cents per litre in Penticton and Vernon, but Kelowna stations are charging significantly more than the rest. The cheapest gas available in Kelowna will still cost you 102.9 cents per litre and many stations are now at 106.9 cents per litre.
All cities in the Interior are still offering gas at less than the provincial average of 104.6 but BCGasPrices.com is predicting a general increase across the province in the coming days.
With prices as low as 82.4 cents per litre, Prince George is charging the least of all cities in the province, while Saltspring Island is the highest at 119.9.
