Those prices pretty much mirror what I paid at Campbell River, Prince Rupert, and Juneau

6 days ago paid $5.65 at Cap Sante Anacortes. I'm surprised Port McNeill was that low. Will probably fill up again in Ketchikan.

Predicted 35-45 tonight!

No. 15k for fuel is ridiculous. We are staying on the lower river this year.

Got to ask, are you quoting per gallon or per litre? May seen like a foolish question and I am assuming you are quoting per U.S. gallon but is that the case?

Last week I filled up and the cost in Gibsons, B.C was 2.34 L or 8.86 per USG / 10.26 per Imp. gal.

We are intending to travel to the Broughtons for about 4-6 weeks.

I am quoting US gallons but also US dollars. $8.86 Canadian is $6.91 US. We are happy you give us Southerners a nice discount these days.

Sitka is surprising at $4.94. That's cheaper than truck stop prices in the lower 48 these days.

That's what they told me. Maybe base price without taxes.

Btw, the lowest cost fuel on the BC inside passage is by arranging to have it delivered by truck at the pier in Sointula, usually done on Thursdays. Coop fuel 250-973-6717.

Perhaps this...


Ketchikan
Any person 65 years of age or older who is eligible to receive a PFD, or would be eligible if they applied, and who has been a bona fide resident of the Ketchikan Gateway Borough for not less than 180 days, may be eligible for a sales tax exemption card. Sales tax exemption benefits for the eligible person include no sales taxes on purchases for personal use by the eligible person and/or their spouse. Exempt purchases include groceries, gasoline, utilities, residential rent, retail services and more.
A person who is eligible for an exemption card and who is physically or mentally unable to use their card can apply for an authorized person or entity to use the card on their behalf.
For more information, see http://www.borough.ketchikan.ak.us/1...Tax-Exemptions, or call the Senior Tax Exemptions Office at 907-228-6609.


(PFD=Permanent Fund Dividend)
