In Penticton, both Super Save and Petro-Canada stations were posting per litre gas prices as low as 98.9 cents as of Friday and the Peach City is home to all of the 10 cheapest gas stations in B.C.

The South Okanagan is in the midst of a gas war, with the price of a litre of petrol dropping below one dollar.

But the war has not spread to Kamloops, where, as of Saturday, Feb. 22, the lowest price was found at Costco in Aberdeen, at $1.16 per litre. The range in Kamloops is between $1.16 and $122.9 per litre.

In Penticton, both Super Save and Petro-Canada stations were posting per litre gas prices as low as 98.9 cents as of Friday and the Peach City is home to all of the 10 cheapest gas stations in B.C.

The current provincial average price for gas is 135.1 cents per litre.

Currently, Victoria holds the dubious title of being home to the most expensive gas in the province. The average gas price in the province’s capital sits at 142.7 cents per litre.

While gas in Penticton may be cheap, it’s not the lowest the country has to offer. The country’s least expensive gas can be found in Edmonton, at 89 cents per litre.
