$150.9 to $1.769!

Your government is making life more affordable, though. Just remember that when you fill up. More affordable.

It's only a handful of stations at the 176.9 price, mainly Shell.

Most of the others are at 165.9 with a handful at 169.9.

The independent down the street from me is at 160.9.

 

Haven't seen this much variation between stations here in Victoria in a long time. It's worth shopping around right now.

Now might be a good time to fill up.

Gas is expected to increase to 174.9 today per gaswizard.ca (Dan McTeague)

So about $1 of which is tax, plus GST on tax. Making life more affordable.

I always wonder about your distaste of tax yet continual championing for additional services, such as an increase of BC Transit on the island.

I do wish more of our tax dollars went to things like transit.

Watch out too for developments in Europe, if Putin decides to go into Ukraine then all bets are off in terms of additional increases at the pump here. One analyst said tonight in that case $2/litre for gas in this country "....much sooner that later" is highly probable. That analyst further believes $100++USD p/b is a certainty in the event Russia does move on its neighbour.

 

Ultimately under that invasion scenario how abruptly and how high the potential jump in oil prices will be would depend on what sort of sanctions the US and its allies imposed on Russia in response to a conflict in the region. Given that Russia is a major oil and grain supplier and is also apparently a key producer of palladium, which is used in the production of catalytic converters, fears of fuel price rises are well founded.

Wasn't the last fuel tax that got added in Victoria specifically for transit?

It was the carbon tax, that went from revenue neutrality to general revenues.

I don't think that was a new tax, but yes there was an increase.

Isn't a user pay tax that goes into general revenues a good thing? Helps keep BC income taxes among the lowest in Canada.

The UK is paying $2.55 CDN today for a litre of gas.  In Holland it's $2.94 today.

Yup don't know about Holland but gas prices in the UK have been generally higher than over here for ages; can't recall how long ago but a friend travelling around Britain mentioned it being above the $2/liter threshold many, many years ago. It seems we'll be playing catch-up quite quickly. It will be interesting to see if the sales of e-vehicles in Canada spike as a result.

Big difference is most folks use rail service to travel between towns and there are plentiful Ubers/taxis and very reasonable prices compared to here.

The motorways are hugely popular.

By 2015 83% of distance travelled was by car or taxi; with 5% being by bus and 10% by rail.
