City’s gas prices make little sense

To the Editor,

A couple of years ago I used to travel down to Victoria from Nanaimo every two weeks and the price of gas at the various Victoria service stations was consistently higher that what we were paying in Nanaimo.

Frequently the price in Duncan was lower than in Nanaimo as much as four cents.

I have been down to Victoria three or four times since the start of 2012 and to my surprise, gas prices were lower than Nanaimo – much lower.

Why are we in Nanaimo getting charged so much? Now it looks as if we are up again?
