Gasoline rip-off

There was a time when we use to drive an extra two or three blocks to save two cents on a gallon of gasoline.

I, for the life of me, cannot figure out why Campbell Riverites are not driving to Courtenay for their fuel?

The price in Campbell River is $1.35.9/liter and at Safeway in Courtenay it is $1.22.9 that’s a whopping 60-cents-a-gallon difference.

My truck holds 18 gallons and a tidy tank of 100 gallons, every trip to Courtenay saves me $70 a fill over Campbell River prices.

Kamloops has the lowest prices at $1.18.9/ liter but hardly worth the drive. If I were going by you can bet I’d have a 218-gallon capacity in my truck.

Campbell Riverites are being ripped off as it hardly costs 13 cents a liter more to transport fuel from Courtenay to here.

The retailers here would be better off to buy their fuel from Courtenay retailers than the local wholesalers.
