Gas prices

Can anyone tell me why regular gasoline is more expensive in southern B.C. than almost anywhere else in Canada?

Can anyone tell me why regular gasoline is more expensive in southern B.C. than almost anywhere else in Canada? A quick search on Gasbuddy.com reveals yet again that Vernon has some of highest gas prices in the country.

I concede that the B.C. gas tax might have something to do with it, but how then to explain that on Jan. 31 regular gasoline in Kamloops was in the 82¢ per litre range while Vernon was over 93¢?

I just don’t get it, and I don’t know who to yell at. It’s so frustrating.
