If you’re willing to travel a bit further to fill up, Abbotsford is the place to go. Gasbuddy reports prices there are as low as 127.9 cents/ litre at Costco (but keep in mind you’ll have to be a member to fill up there).

Last weekend, prices dropped ten cents. On Wednesday, Dan McTeague, senior analyst at GasBuddy, announced another six-cent drop.

This year Metro Vancouver has seen record high gas prices, reaching up to 172.9 cents/litre.

In April, British Columbia saw another increase in the province’s carbon tax rate – an annual increase that will continue until 2021.
