Are B.C.’s gas prices enough to keep you from travelling May long weekend?

Gas prices in B.C. ranging from 125 cents per litre to more than 150 cents

With Victoria Day long weekend underway, filling up the gas tank is most likely taking a larger chunk out of the vacation budget than this time last year – depending how far and where British Columbians are travelling.

Earlier this week, fuel market analyst Dan McTeague of GasBuddy.com said Vancouver region prices could rise by a cent or two over the weekend from Thursday’s average of about $1.61 cents per litre but will fall back as the workweek dawns.

Gas prices by region of B.C., according to GasBuddy.com.
