Gas shortages hit West Kelowna


Several West Kelowna gas stations have run dry of particular grades of gas in recent days.

Both the Chevron on Dobbin Road and the gas station at the Superstore in West Kelowna blamed delivery issues for shortages of certain types of gas on Wednesday.

The stations are back to normal Thursday.

Thursday morning the Petro-Canada on Main Street in West Kelowna did not have premium gas.

However, the clerk expected that will be fixed later in the day.

Christina Quaschnick said customers are taking the shortage in stride.

“Some of them get upset but…for all around they are good,” Quaschnick said.
