Western diesel shortage continues

Diesel supply remains spotty in parts of Western Canada, sending prices soaring in certain areas.

There is currently a diesel shortage in Western Canada due to a shortage of hydrogen sulphide that has affected the ability of a major Suncor refinery to produce diesel.

Some truckers are being turned away at fuel stations and a few cardlocks reportedly have signs indicating they’re temporarily out of fuel.

For the most part, though, diesel is available save for some intermittent shortages.

Prices can fluctuate quickly, however, and it can cost about $1.20 to fill up – high for these parts.

Suncor says the supply problem should be resolved around Nov. 17.
