The ebb and flow of Prince Rupert's gas station supplies

The ongoing issues of supplies for Northwest gas stations continued to make some news over the weekend, with reports of empty tanks in a number of communities in the Bulkley Valley making for the need to plan a journey with a wary eye on the gas gauge as you travel.

In Prince Rupert, things are looking up for the loyal customers of Chevron, which saw a supply finally arrive in town late Saturday afternoon, providing a replenishment of the reservoirs which have been empty for the last week, a situation that we last noted one week ago.

Down the road at the 7-11 Esso station, all that remained in their reservoir was Supreme gasoline, with no indication as to when the remaining grades would be available again.

The troubles for the downtown stations have provided for a boost for the two Petro Canada outlets in the city today, with the Hays Cove one finding significant traffic this afternoon, while fill up levels out in the industrial park were a little bit lighter than in town.
