LETTERS: Ouch

Lowest price per barrel of oil in four years sure doesn’t translate to lower pricing at the pumps, especially in the Okanagan.

Lowest price per barrel of oil in four years sure doesn’t translate to lower pricing at the pumps, especially in the Okanagan.

Here’s a comparison on regular grade as of Friday, July 24: Calgary Alta. $ .984, Kelowna $ 1.319, Penticton $ 127.9 and going up. Maybe instead of trucking our fuel in from Kamloops we should ask where Tofino on the west side of Vancouver Island buys their fuel. Today’s price in Tofino $ 121.9

Hmm, maybe we should take the same stand as Merritt did and advise visitors to the Okanagan to bypass our expensive gas pricing and fill up elsewhere.
