Fort St. John gas prices jump 10 cents.

The new common posted price for gasoline in Fort St. John is a $1.379 a litre, which is two cents higher than the new provincial average. It also works out to about $6.27 cents an imperial gallon, and was in place at five of the seven filling stations in a morning price monitor today.
