The new 60-city cross-Canada survey of pump prices puts the national average price last week, at a dollar 18 point five cents a liter.

That was more than 26 cents a liter below, the common posted price in Fort St. John, which is now second only to Yelllowknife, on the monitor of MJ Ervin and Associates released today.

The local price was also more than 15 cents a liter higher than the average price of the other five survey cities in BC…and, it was more than ten cents higher than the average price of every province in country.
