So this is interesting, Terrace like Rupert had a bit of a run on gasoline the last few days.
But Terrace has been resupplied today, as Petro Can sent a truck through from PG over the Cranberry connector.
As an added bonus, the folks in Terrace now pay 1.17, two cents cheaper than two days ago, and ahem, eight cents cheaper than what we paid on empty the tanks day…
Sure would like to know why our price needs to be six to eight cents higher than a town normally 90 minutes away…
Price of gas drops

ONE OF two local gas stations that ran out after rumours of pending shortages spread through the town Wednesday has had its storage tanks re-filled.
The Copperside Petrocan station in Thornhill was re-opened this morning but the company’s Shell station in Terrace remains closed, says company official Chris Moldenhauer.
“I’m not worried about the fuel situation anymore. Petrocan got some from Prince George through the Cranberry Connector,” he said.
It’s not known when a Shell tanker will come over the Connector.
Not only is fuel flowing over the Connector, but the price per litre has dropped from yesterday to today.
From yesterday’s price of $119.9 a litre for regular gas, it is now $117.9.
