Fuel costs

Resident questions the high price of gas locally compared to the Lower Mainland

I had to go to Port Coquitlam recently and I got to Chilliwack to gas up.

The price was 98.9 cents a litre at all gas stations. I asked, “How long?” I was told, “A while.”

Hmm, good enough for me.

I phoned the MLA to comment, to which the company standard response came forward.

It got me to thinking that maybe we should have a 20-odd cent gas tax here so our price will be similar or better than the coast?
