Gas prices top $2 per liter in B.C. as crude surges
BNN: 'The price of gasoline has topped $2 a litre in British Columbia as Canadians continue to see eye-popping numbers at the pump this week, spurred upward by Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The retail price of gas across the country averaged $1.76 per litre on Friday, up from $1.62 just two days earlier, according to Natural Resources Canada. Gas prices reached $2.00 per litre in Vancouver, $1.75 in Toronto, $1.84 in Montreal and $1.67 in Halifax. "It shocked me. A lot of things have gone up in price but this was a lot," said Esther Peralta, as she filled her tank at an East Vancouver gas station where the sign read $1.999.'
