OKANAGAN – As the price of oil continues to fall, drivers across the country are noticing it costs them a lot less to fill their tanks.

Compared with the rest of Canada however, Okanagan prices haven't been set as low.

According to, a website that compares gas prices across North America, most prices in Kelowna are sitting just below $1. That’s significantly less than it was a few months ago, but still around half a cent above the provincial average of 99.5 and almost ten per cent higher than the national average of 90.2.

In Penticton the Super Save on Green Mountain Road is selling for 98.9 but the majority of stations are at 99.9. Vernon is also at just under $1.

B.C. currently has the third most expensive gas in the country, only Quebec and the Northwest Territories are higher, at 100.9 and 108.9 respectively.

The cheapest gas in the country is still in oil rich Alberta, where their average is 76.4. In B.C., Prince George has the lowest with an average of 82.9. Kamloops came in second in B.C. with some stations selling for below 87 cents per litre.

Still, Kelowna is cheaper than most of Vancouver Island and the lower mainland, where gas still costs close to 102 cents a litre.

The owner of a gas station in Kelowna who does not want to be named says she expects Kelowna prices will continue to drop in the coming weeks but could not say how low it will go.
