Edmonton and Calgary have the lowest gas prices out of any major city in Canada

Mar 2 2022, 8:29 pm

Fuel prices are rising across the country, but if you are in Edmonton or Calgary, at least our price at the pump is the lowest in all of Canada. It’s the small wins, we guess?

According to the latest daily pump price survey from Kent Group, regular gas in Edmonton sits at 143.1 cents per litre on March 2, 2022. Calgary is at 146.5 cents per litre.

Gas is also relatively cheap across Alberta compared to other spots in Canada, with Red Deer at 146.9 cents per litre and Lethbridge at 154.8 cents per litre.

ā€œEdmonton gets the lowest prices, because thatā€™s where all the refineries are. Edmonton is the lowest barometer in Alberta,” saidĀ Vijay Muralidharan, director of consulting at Kalibrate & Kent Group in Calgary.

Here’s a quick look at the regular and premium fuel prices in some spots across Canada:
