The plunging price of oil seems to finally be having an effect at the pump.
The price of gas has finally dropped below $1 in several Lower Mainland cities.
According to GasBuddy.com, prices are at 97.9 cents a litre in Port Coquitlam, 98.9 in Langley and 99.9 in Delta.
But the overall average in the Lower Mainland is still over a dollar, at $1.05 a litre.
Vancouver has some of the country’s highest gas prices, with the national average currently at 88 cents a litre.
Calgary, for example, has some of the country’s cheapest prices at an average of 73.4 cents a litre.

Monday morning sees gas prices go up again
Dan McTeague is a Senior Petroleum Analyst with Gasbuddy.com. He discussed current gas prices with Jon McComb on Monday morning.
McTeague says because we rely on external sources for our gasoline, crude doesn’t have the same kind of influence on prices, which is why they aren’t lower.
He does think it will continue to drop, but not before it goes up again.
