It’s an out-of-place, but very welcome drop, in a year that Metro Vancouver saw the highest gas prices in North America, reaching up to 172.9 cents/litre.

Keep in mind, British Columbia also saw an increase in the province’s carbon tax rate, as well as a shift to a more expensive, summer blend of gasoline.
