Gas prices in any given market can ebb and flow in any which direction, with price comparisons between Winnipeg and Brandon being a point of interest for many local folks that regularly make the drive. Whereas at times the two markets can be on relative par with each other, a current price disparity in the provincial capital is at a level of standing out.
As of this morning at least two stations at the West end of Portage Avenue in Winnipeg are currently posting a price of 100.9 per litre for regular gasoline. Though it should be kept in mind that the two cities are about 200km apart, that’s nearly 11 cents per litre less than the 111.6-111.9 that was typical in Brandon on Monday as of the time of this posting.
The 100.9 price would appear to be the outlier not just for Manitoba, but even Winnipeg where many stations are at 105.6-105.9 and some are actually as high as 111.9.
Not far down the highway in Portage la Prairie the price could be seen at 110.6. The price seen at the pump in any given market can vary based on a host of factors including the cost that fuel is available at from suppliers as well as any local competitive dynamic.
