The price of gasoline is climbing at the pumps in the Cariboo.

As of Thursday morning (March 3) the price of gas ranges anywhere from $1.61 a litre to $178.9 a litre. Just the day before the lowest price in town was $1.55 a litre.

In Quesnel a few stations are still at $1.52.9 and $1.54.9 a litre but most have rised the price to $1.74.9.

Prices are expected to rise further as further as Russia’s attack on Ukraine puts even greater pressure on an already surging oil price environment.
