For the time being, Vernon has some of the cheapest gas prices in B.C.

The website gasbuddy.com showed Vernon with nine of the top-10 cheapest prices for fuel in the province Tuesday, ranging from $1.14.9 to $1.16.9 per litre.

Three of four gas stations along 25th Avenue to 43rd Street had gas for $1.14.9, the other is at $1.16.9. But by Tuesday afternoon some Vernon stations had jumped to $1.27.9 and $1.29.9.

One Prince George outlet ($1.15.9) prevented a Vernon sweep of the top-10 prices.
