Gas prices jump in Fort St. John

By Dwight Ford

It looks like the gas pump honeymoon may be over for local area motorists.

 

Prior to opening this morning, at least three local filling stations, the Petro-can and Esso outlets on 100th street and FasGas on 108th street had posted prices for a regular liter, at a 109.9 cents.

That represents an increase of 8.7 cents and brings to an end nearly half a year of local prices near a dollar a liter.

It also comes on the heels of nearly a two cent drop in the national average price in the past week.

The weekly monitor of Calgary based MJ Ervin and Associates shows it fell 1.07 cents a liter to a 105.00.

According to www.bcgasprices.com the new posted price in Fort St. John is also above the provincial average, even though it is up to a 108.3 cents and is nearly 12 cents a liter higher than it was this time last year.
