British Columbia Gas Prices Highest In Canada

Recent Gas Price Study Proved Nothing
Hamstrung by GreeNDP's Horgan & Weaver

Prices from Gas Buddy Sept. 2/19

It is hard to imagine that the average price for gasoline is cheaper in the Northwest Territories than in the province of British Columbia.

The recent study of gas prices in BC was just another GreeNDP bit of flim flamery as they try to explain why BC enjoys the highest gas prices in all of North America. 

The investigators were not allowed to consider what impact government taxes and government policy has on the cost of fuel at the pumps in BC.

Gas Prices in the USA
Average $.90 CAD per litre
 (adjusted for US gal. & currency exchange)

On Sept. 2 2019 according the AAA the average price in the USA was $2.57 per US gallon.

To compare with Canadian prices takes a bit of head scratching. At $2.57 US per US gallon (3.785 litres) and an exchange rate of $0.752 it would cost $3.42 CAD to purchase one US gallon at today's rate. In other words in the US $3.42 CAD would purchase 3.785 litres of gasoline for a per litre cost of $.90.
