Drivers are paying more for gas in the Cariboo than in the Lower Mainland and other areas of B.C.

As of Thursday morning the regular gas price is $1.379 a litre at all the stations along Oliver Street and Highway 97.

According to GasBuddy.com, regular gas is selling for $ 1.154 in Fernie, $1.159 in Abbotsford, $1.169 in Mission and as low as $1.339 in Vancouver.

In 100 Mile House, the price is $1.429 for regular, in Quesnel the price is a low as $1.289 and $1.299 and in Prince George as low a $1.26

Gas prices are dropping in southern portions of the province due to an “historic” seven-cent drop in crude oil prices, GasBuddy.com senior analyst Dan McTeague told Black Press Media on Wednesday.

We have put in a call to Husky Energy to see if gas prices will be dropping in the Cariboo region as gasoline supplied to Williams Lake stations comes from Prince George.
