Fuel prices have dipped a bit in northwestern Ontario, but Kenora area drivers are still paying some of the higher costs across the country.
According to GasBuddy, Kenora’s gas prices have dropped four cents from 159.9 to 155.9 per litre, while Dryden’s prices have fallen to 154.9.
But drivers in Red Lake are still paying a reported 169.9 per litre, while Fort Frances has held steady at 159.9. Thunder Bay’s prices continue to range between 129.0 and 155.9, depending on the station.
This is the first drop in the Kenora area’s gas prices since February 12, when the price per litre slipped from 161.9 to 159.9.
But between February 12 and February 28, Ontario’s average gas prices fluctuated 15 times with prices ranging from 143.4 to 139.9 per litre.
GasBuddy’s statistics show the average fuel price in the Kenora district now sits at 155.9 – leaving the district just outside of the top 25 most expensive regions for fuel across Canada.
The City of Kenora itself would have the 23rd most expensive fuel in Canada, tied with Kamloops, BC and Sherbrooke, QC. Red Lake’s price of 169.9 would be tied for 14th.
No prices were recorded for the Sioux Lookout area.
Vancouver, BC owns the unfortunate top spot of most expensive fuel in Canada at 184.5 per litre. The least expensive gas can be found in Medicine Hat, AB at 115.9.
