Gas for under $2? Where to find it in B.C.

It might be a bit of a drive...
Remember the good old days of gas for less than a dollar?

Gas for under two bucks?

While that might seem like a dream of motoring days sadly gone by, it appears it is a reality in the Shuswap.

A quick survey of B.C. markets on gas price watchdog site shows the cheapest fuel in the province in Salmon Arm, where Super Save has regular fuel for the seemingly "bargain" price 197.9 cents a litre.

Not so long ago, drivers would have shuddered at the thought, but now it's something to get excited about as gasoline prices linger in record territory.

Trail and Castlegar stations are pumping for 205.9, while the cheapest gas in the Okanagan is in Vernon at 207.9 cents a litre.

Kelowna stations currently range from 212.9 to 216.9 cents a litre — and don't forget to add more if your vehicle requires mid-grade or premium fuel.

Kamloops prices range from a low of 209.9 to 217.9.

In Penticton, drivers are paying anywhere from 214.9 to 218.9 cents a litre.

Metro Vancouver motorists are coughing up 224.9 cents a litre at most stations, with some as high as 227.9.
