Remember when Prince George once had the cheapest gas in all of B.C. at 68.9 cents a litre?

That number seems like a distant memory as parts of the province's economy slowly begin to come back, including oil and gas.

As of this publication (2:15 p.m., June 30), the lowest price for local fuel before Canada's 153rd birthday is 110.9 at Costco on Range Road.

The next nine prices all display 116.9 as the next cheapest gas in the city, as shown by GasBuddy.com in the graphic below.

While Prince George prices may be considered 'low' in comparison to other parts of the province, the cheapest fuel remains in northern B.C. at under a dollar a litre, but it's about a four-hour drive away.

Dawson Creek's Petro-Canada location at 1449 Alaska Ave. is offering gas for 98.8 cents.

The following nine lowest prices in B.C. are just a slight tick above at 98.9, six of which are in Dawson Creek and three in Fort St. John.
