Gas prices lower, but remain ridiculous

Gas prices in Salmon Arm are still high. Remember when it was $1.38? Since then oil has dropped 39 per cent – yes – that is 39 per cent

Gas prices in Salmon Arm are still high. Remember when it was $1.38? Since then oil has dropped 39 per cent – yes – that is 39 per cent.

So, if we take $1.38 less 39 per cent we get $0.84 – yep, 84 cents per litre. So, today, the Dec. 7, prices are $1.18 in Salmon Arm except for the Esso which is $1.21.  Guess they really want to give it to us, eh?

Well, guess what, I’m definitely getting my gas elsewhere – Abbotsford $1.01, Kamloops $1.05 and, get this, Courtenay way out on the island $1.06.

Guess it’s still cheaper to float it over there, eh? Yep, good ol’ boys club in Salmon Arm  still taking care of us!
