Fort St. John Gasoline Price Jump

We’re still about seven weeks away from the official start of summer, but it would appear the summer driving season has already arrived in Fort St. John.

 

With the Petro-Can, Esso and FasGas filling stations taking the lead, posted prices for a regular liter of gasoline have jumped this morning by 12.7 cents.

The new posted price at those outlets is $113.9.

According to BCGasPrices.com that’s nearly 5 cents a liter higher than the BC average, and close to 10 cents higher than the national average.

The local price is also now 14 cents a liter higher than it was at this time last year, but that is right in line with the year-over-year increase in the national average.

The price hike comes on the heels of another major increase in the price of oil, which jumped nearly two dollars a barrel yesterday, and at last report this morning was trading at roughly 85 and half dollars U.S.
