Vancouver Gas Prices Dropping 50 cents a Litre Heading Into Long Weekend 'price-drops' gas in celebration of New Price Drop Protection Plan!

VANCOUVER, Sept. 1, 2011 /CNW/ - The petroleum industry may deny it, but we all know that gas prices go up right before a long weekend. As Vancouverites look to fill up before hitting the road tomorrow, many of them are expected to fill up at the gas bar at 16788 104th Avenue (at the corner of 104th Avenue and 167th Street in Surrey) where is dropping the price of gas by 50 cents per litre, giving consumers a much needed break on ever-rising fuel costs.

The deal is in promotion of's new Price Drop Protection plan. The Price Drop Protection (PDP) plan is a unique, free program, exclusive to customers on all economy flights. Price Drop Protection allows consumers to track flight price drops after they buy and, when a price drop occurs, lock in the savings.

"Due to fluctuating prices, Canadians worry about the best time to book a flight or fill their tanks," said Jamil al Jabri, Marketing Manager of "Our new Price Drop Protection plan takes the guess work out of booking flights, while our gas Price Drop promotion takes the guess work out of when to fill up at the pumps. In either case, it's all about knowing that you have locked in the best deal."

The price drop begins at 8:00 a.m. and runs until 20,000 litres of price-dropped gas runs out (estimated to be 4-5 hours). Each vehicle will be entitled to 50 litres at the discounted price - gas can fill-ups are not permitted. Patrons can also expect some fun random giveaways on-site.
