Gas prices spike in Rainbow after Creekside Husky closes

Whistler's Creekside Husky closed until Jan. 23 as it converts to a Co-op

Gas prices jumped at Green Lake Station in Whistler's Rainbow neighbourhood on Tuesday, as the Creekside Husky station is now closed for a week.

Editor's Note: Following publication of this article, Green Lake Station's ownership reached out to Pique to say the recent price hike had nothing to do with the temporary closure of Husky, but rather because of escalating costs across the board, among a number of other factors out of the owners' control. The article follows as originally published. 

Heads up if you're planning on filling up in Whistler today: gas prices at Green Lake Station in Rainbow are up significantly this morning.

On Tuesday, Jan. 17, fuel at the Chevron gas station was listed at 177.9—well above the 169.9 it was selling for at the Creekside Husky on Jan. 14.

As of Yesterday, Jan. 16, the Creekside Husky is closed for the week as it transitions into a Co-op, leaving Green Lake Crossing as the main gas station for Whistler commuters for the time being.

In Squamish, most stations are listing at 164.9, though the lowest price on Tuesday morning was 161.9, at the Squamish Valley Gas Bar.
