124.9 throughout Abby the last few days. That's about 19 cents above the Canada average.

At these prices I can see why people go across the line. I calculated I could save $18 on a fill-up by going to Sumas, and that's after exchange. I hate the Sumas crossing, though. The border guards there are assholes.

I saw one station on Lougheed in Mission just a week ago @ 127.9c this week they seem steady at 119.9c thats just absurd.

The Vancouver rack price is 72.60, which is higher than Nanaimo (go figure!), 12 cents higher than Kamloops, and almost 20 cents higher than Prince George. This is unusual, and won't last long.

Crazy. That explains a lot. Most of BC has about the same level of taxation as Toronto, but we're currently paying 19 cents more per litre (at least in Abbotsford).

It's basically like a massive tax, except with no benefit of enhanced in infrastructure.

Abbottsford almost always has the cheapest gas in BC. Now it's one of the highest.

Guess I'll have to renew my Costco membership. They've been way cheaper lately. Currently 12 cents cheaper for regular compared to the other stations near me.
