The gasoline supply problems of Western Canadian Petro Canada filling stations have reached Fort St. John.
Like many others in BC and Alberta, the Petro-Can self serve station at the corner of 100th street and 105th avenue is out of gas.
As reported earlier, it follows a malfunction at the Petro Canada refinery in Edmonton, which normally produces about 125,000 barrels a day.
It was shut down last week and, the company says stations are offering high grade gasoline at regular prices, where supplies of Regular run out.
However, it also says when any station runs out of gas it’s posted price will disappear or be replaced by a series of zeros.
That noted, at last report, it was still buisness as usual, at Fort St. John’s Petro-Canada truck stop, on the Alaska Highway.
