Drivers filling up their fuel tanks in Kamloops today will see a noticeable difference since yesterday as the price of gas jumped three-and-a-half cents overnight.

Luckily for Kamloops residents, at $1.394 on average, it still remains the cheapest place to buy gas in the Okanagan today, July 31.

According to GasBuddy.com, the price of regular gas in Vernon was down one cent from yesterday at $1.459, while prices in Kelowna and Penticton stayed steady at $1.459 and $1.429 respectively.

The price of gas is up by 10 cents a litre in Vernon over last months average, while Kelowna and Kamloops saw rises of five cents per litre and Penticton just three cents per litre over last month's average price.

While the price of gas may be up from last year's average of around $1.10, the Okanagan still has cheaper gas prices than Vancouver, which averaged at $152.8 today.

Williams Lake is the cheapest place in the province today at $1.269 a litre.
