Suncor is reporting a significant problem with it refinery in Edmonton, and that’s resulted in a shortage of gas at Petro-Canada stations, that now includes outlets in B.C.
Dan McTeague is with GasBuddy.com.
“That’s obviously something that is important because it not only affects Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, but it also takes into account gas stations in the B.C. interior, in the Peace River, of course in the Okanagan.”
A Kelowna station ran out of gas yesterday afternoon and he says we could see it affect gas stations here.
“And, of course Suncor does sell gasoline, and other oil products into the Trans-Mountain Kinder Morgan pipeline, which makes its way down into Vancouver.”
McTeague says they don’t think the Suncor refinery problem is related to the Fort McMurray wildfire, but Suncor is not required to tell Canadians if that’s the case.
