Gas prices across the South Island are on the verge of hitting $2 per litre.
Since October, prices have been on a steady increase, from the last low of $1.58 per litre.
Comparatively, this time last year the cost of gas on the South Island had already broken through the $2 threshold and was much higher at around $2.25 per litre.
While it’s certainly a favourable difference, the price remains on a steady climb, having grown close to 10 cents per month since the fall.
As of noon Friday, GasBuddy is reporting the cheapest price as $182.9 per litre, at the Centex & Go Market on the Malahat summit.
So far, no station has tipped the price over the two-dollar mark.
