first_imgMeantime, the national average had also slipped about half a cent to 93.8 and so had the B.C. low end price at the Prince George Costco, down a penny to 89.9 cents.That resulted in another province-wide price difference of thirty cents a litre, because the high end price was back up to a 119.9 cents, thanks to the Skookumchuck Service Centre in the Rocky Mountain Trench of the East Kootenay region. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — 101.9 cents became firmly established during the weekend at retail gasoline stations in Fort St. John as the city’s new common posted price for a regular litre.However, the seven-cent increase initiated at the end of last week continues a local pricing trend which still runs contrary to most of the province, and for that matter, most the country.For weeks prior to the hike, prices were going up across the country, while local outlets held firm at 96.9 cents. They even briefly slipped to 94.9, before the long predicted increase — based on a U.S. wholesale price hike.- Advertisement -However once the local increase was firmly in place, prices elsewhere started to go down.By midday yesterday, the GasBuddy.com survey had the first day of spring beginning with average prices in every province either down slightly, or holding steady.That was even true of B.C., which had slipped about half a cent to a 105.5, but because Quebec had dropped back to 98.7, this province regained the dubious honor as the only one in the country with an average above a dollar a litre.Advertisementlast_img read more
