KAMLOOPS - Hopefully you filled up the car yesterday, because if you waited until today you could be paying at much as 10 cents more per litre after yet another price spike at the pumps.
We saw gas prices drop below 90 cents per litre at many stations for a couple weeks in January before they slowly creeped back up to an average of 94.9 cents per litre and then 104.9 cents per litre for much of February.
As of this morning, March 4, GasBuddy.com, a consumer-driven website database, shows the price of regular gas now sitting at 114.9 cents per litre across the city with even the Costco gas station above a dollar per litre and a few stations holding out at 104.9 cents per litre.
The average price in B.C. is 119.2 cents per litre while the national average sits at 107.7 cents per litre. The cheapest gas in B.C. is in Prince George and Williams Lake, where several stations are charging 99.9 cents per litre, and the most expensive fuel can be found on Vancouver Island, 132.9 cents per litre, though many stations in the Lower Mainland and on the Island are charging 131.9 cents per litre for regular fuel.
