I did the math and I could save $15-17 a tank (65 litres) by filling up in Sumas. I thought it would be a bigger difference, but apparently they're suffering high prices there as well.

Ya, one of the main reasons for the spike is that two refineries are down for maintenance south of the border. The experts are predicting $2/litre this summer, but in my view prices will fall over the summer once the refineries are up and running. I expect we'll see super cheap prices like 140 cents/litre during the summer. LOL

I saw 149.9 today in Abby. That's the highest I've ever seen here.

I forgot that Maple Ridge was basically the same as Vancouver with the Translink tax.

Yes it is. Thankfully I have Silverdale and Mission to get the cheaper gas.
