It happened again. I wasn’t paying attention and the gas light came on in my truck. This is not the first time this has happened and I suspect it won’t the last as I tend to get stuck in my own little world sometimes. Fortunately I was not far from a gas station only to realize it had gone up since the last time I filled up. Naturally I grumbled at the price.
“Grrr, what is the issue now,” I asked myself. “Who got a head cold now to warrant such an increase,” I said.
Well, turns out we can’t grumble about gas because, on average, Saskatchewan has the lowest prices right now, hovering around 110.8 cents per litre. However our brothers and sisters in British Columbia are feeling it the most with prices hanging around 136.1 cents per litre on average according to gasbuddy.com. Apparently it has to do with an increased demand for gas and BC’s supply is low. If only there was some sort of pipeline that could help send petroleum from Alberta to….ohhhhh wait now.
Okay, that’s just a little jab at their expense, but in all seriousness, parts of southern BC, specifically Vancouver, are dealing with gas prices as high as 1.53 per litre and some experts predict the price could be as high at 1.60 per litre starting April. We all can hope a solution is found quickly in beautiful British Columbia as many will be gearing up for summer road trips there and nobody wants to deal with 1.60 per litre gas whether you live there or happen to be visiting! Looks like bicycles will be the main mode of transportation for the next while. Actually, I think unicycles would look really cool.
Here in Regina, gas is averaging 109.6 per litre which is down from 111.4 yesterday. Why is it down? Because I gassed up yesterday, of course! Anyway, happy motoring out there today!
