Gas is down to 1.16 in Mission apparently today.

"Metro Vancouver gas prices expected to plunge Thursday" This was released yesterday. https://globalnews.ca/news/4661723/metr ... es-plunge/


Yeah, that didn't happen. Prices are rising now according to Gasbuddy. http://www.vancouvergasprices.com/

You'd have to wonder how they could make such an aggressive prediction and be 100% wrong. Weather forecasters can at least predict the next day reliably, if not with perfect accuracy.

Still 115.9 at Costco in Abby, though. :D

What didn't happen? I saw a drop in gas prices in Maple Ridge to about 136.

When was that though, and from what price?

Correction: according to Gasbuddy, prices did n fact drop about 3 cents from Wednesday to Thursday, but that's only half of the forecast drop. As of Friday afternoon, prices are back up to Wednesday levels already. So I guess if you bought gas on Thursday, then you did benefit from a small drop.

That was yesterday, the price was like 140 or something. I don't remember.

112.9 at Costco... 116.9 everywhere else in Abby.

Under a buck in Toronto.
