Gas price discrepancy makes no sense

"I feel we are getting ripped off and can do nothing about it."

A recent trip to Vancouver [Sept 21/15] gave me the chance to purchase my gas in Aldergrove B.C.

The price per litre was .98.9 cents. For the life of me I cannot understand why it costs an extra .24 cents per litre to distribute gas in the Kootenays as opposed to the Abbottsford/Aldergrove area.

If someone from the gas industry can explain it I would much appreciate it as well as I think the public might. As I see it, I feel we are getting ripped off and can do nothing about it.
