Penticton home to cheapest gas in B.C.

Gas can be found for as little as 107.9 cents per litre in Penticton, but this may quickly change.

Penticton has held claim to the lowest gas prices in the province for almost a week now. As of Wednesday night, many gas stations in the city were selling fuel for 108.9 cents per litre and one has a price of 107.9 cents per litre.

A number of Penticton stations are down to 108.9 cents per litre; this is lower than the current national average price despite B.C. traditionally seeing much higher gas prices than the rest of the country.

Currently, Victoria holds the dubious title of being home to the most expensive gas in the province. The average gas price in the province’s capital sits at 142.7 cents per litre.

Meanwhile, just up Highway 97 in Kelowna, the lowest priced station is 123.0 cents per litre. However, most prices appear to be either 127.9 cents per litre or 128.9 cents per litre.

While gas in Penticton may be cheap, it’s not the lowest the country has to offer. The country’s least expensive gas can be found in Edmonton at 91.7 cents per litre.

Gas prices may be tolerable for Pentictonites right now, but it would be wise to fill up sooner rather than later; industry experts predict prices won’t stay this low for long.

This isn’t the first time Penticton has had the lowest gas prices in the province; in September the city was home to nine of the 10 cheapest stations in B.C.
