Hi,

Planning some travel time and need some information. I know, this has been covered before, but here we go again.

What are the "average" prices of gas in British Columbia?

Thanks
Diane

Thanks for the info, and yes, OUCH.

Are the prices going up as fast as they are here? It seems like there is a daily increase.

Thanks again
Diane

We may head south---gas prices in Mexico are looking real good these days.

I assume you're kidding, Diane. When I was there (several years ago) their prices made gas in Canada look cheap. It does sound like an almost plausible excuse for a good road trip...

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Actually Brian, the gas prices in Mexico are now cheaper---somewhere around $2.50 a gallon. (varies some with the exchange rate--right now, about 7.43 pesos a liter) And, for anyone who needs diesel, it is about $1.77. Now, on the border, the prices went higher because the prices on this side were so high.

Yes, for years we just didn't pay attention to the gas prices in Mexico and just filled up the tank with a blind eye, because gas was a lot more expensive, but not now!

For us, almost anything makes a plausible excuse for a road trip.

Happy Travels
Diane

Interesting!
7.43 pesos per litre is CDN$0.75 / litre, well under our current prices in Alberta of around $1/litre (for regular), and B.C. prices are normally significantly (maybe 10%) higher.

And that is their price for premium--ok, their premium is not quite the same as ours, but the PEMEX gas is a lot better than it used to be. At 5.16 pesos for a liter of diesel, it makes me want a diesel vehicle.
