Heading south for gas?

Higher gasoline prices are sending more B-C drivers south.

Service stations in Blaine, Washington are seeing Canadians filling their tanks with American gas.

Some say they save up to ten dollars by filling up south of the border, where the gas price is roughly 15 cents a litre cheaper than in much of the Lower Mainland.

Dave Lahr is the area supervisor with USA petroleum in Blaine. He says some Americans were caught short by the jump in Canadian prices, and didn't stock up with sufficient supplies.

But they still welcome the return of the cross-border shoppers.
