As summer comes to a close, there’s one thing we can all be happy about: a drop in gas prices.
Dan McTeague with gasbuddy.com tells Daily Hive that the end of driving season combined with a stronger Canadian dollar will lower gas prices throughout the month of September.
“Not only that, come the middle of this month on September 15, the move from more expensive to make summer gasolines to less expensive to make winter gasolines is probably going to see further downward pressure on prices,” he said. “There’s a lot of supply right now – we’re looking at some of the best supply numbers for the Pacific Northwest in a long time.”
For the week of September 6, McTeague says we can expect a drop of three cents per litre, but the major drops will happen in the third week of September barring any major refinery issues that may crop up.
He adds that the strength of the dollar will likely offset any price increases brought about by refinery issues.
For the record, the lowest gas price in Metro Vancouver is at the Costco at 204 Street in Langley for $1.14 a litre.
