No, you are not imagining things.
Gas prices around the Greater Victoria area did really jump 18 cents overnight and it appears this price tag will stick around for the foreseeable future.

According to GasBuddy, most stations around the region are currently idling at 157.9 a litre.

- West Shore: Costco – 799 McCallum Road near Millstream Road – Price: 137.4
- Saanichton : Pump – 1518 Stelly’s Crossroad – Price: 141.7
- View Royal: Esso – 1510 Admirals Road & Craigflower – Price: 156.9
According to analysts, the post-Thanksgiving hit is not expected to subside for the foreseeable future.
