A Saskatoon Gas Price Tip.

Believe it or not there are actually gas stations in Saskatoon that aren't in lock step pricewise with the rest. So if you live on the east side you might want to head to Creeway Gas on 105th Street East or Gas Plus on Central Avenue. They are consistently 2 cents a litre cheaper than the others. This might not seem like much until you consider how much it adds up for each full tank of gas. And by buying your gas there you might help encourage some actual price competition in this city. If you know of any other stations in Saskatoon that have similiar price differences feel free to mention them in the comments section to this post.

Gas Plus operates a number of locations in the City of Saskatoon and outside also.

They are independent and pretty much do what they want and when they want towards offering value to consumers. Often more than a 2.0 cents savings

They can be found on 51st and Faithful
New location in Lakeview Mchercher
Central sutherland
Fairhaven Auto

I support these guys when ever I can...If your a smoker they also offer smoking deals here as well

I use gas plus all the time they always offer instant value and none of these point, collector cards or air miles garbage which are near impossible to figure out...I am not forced to go and buy groceries either with that deal out there

Smoke prices are often 50 to 75 cents a pack better over others plus I have often saved up to 5 cents per litre over others posting retail prices...usually 2-3 on a regular basis.

Yes they do not operate multimillion dollar facilities like others but this allows them to charge less....make no mistake value is present here and I buy from these guys otherwise if no competition is present.........like gas plus we will all pay a higher price

I was told the supply they recieve is identical product found at any Petro Canada station as this is where they secure fuel supply from

Gas Plus who are these guys??....I noticed sites popping up all over the place. I have used from time to time and my experience was reasonably good. Yes the price was better than others... seems to be always better. I will continue to use if a location is near buy

Gas Plus is always the last to raise prices and the first to go down infact sometimes they don't go up like all the others.The only issue I have is the lineups sometimes. Prices are always better this is for sure but when they are alot better the lineups take to much of my time. I like thvalus they offer on a consistant basis though. I am a smoker...yes one of those...prices are considerbly better here

I had some trouble with these guys on Faithful about a month ago. Not really the company but the individual at the till. She was in a bad mood. I see that they have made changes with staffing and I also see they are now full serve. This individual is no longer working at the site. I guess this can happen everyone looking for good staff...not always available. I shop Gas Plus for the deal they give me on the price of gasoline and my cost on a pack of smokes. I hate pumping my own fuel in the winter time but now they are full serve I will return. overall rating I give these guys an 8/10

Cree way is usually a good price on gas always lower than the co-op usually the same as gas plus sometimes higher. I have used Cree Way and the new location Fire Creek. Tax advantages here as these are urban reserve locations located in the city. I don't think I am to get this benifit..What I don't like is being approached in the parking lot and asked if I want to buy cheap smokes. I don't think these individuals work at the site and moreso lot lizards trying to make a quick buck. I don't smoke and have no need...not sure how much difference in price there is but it must be pretty good.

I was a loyal co-op customer but as it turns out my dividend is not so good after all. Coop price always higher than others icluding smokes and cstore stuff. I did recieve a cheque but had income tax deducted. once I calculate everything I am no further ahead. Therefore I have been buying Gas Plus as the value is instant and I do not pay tax on the instant value either. Smokes are cheap at gas plus vrs co-op.

Prices are down well below anyones expectations...below the 99.9 mark all good. Gas Plus ?? I used there facility in Lakeview and yes they were 3.0 cents cheaper than anyone else. Also I have a diesel truck and could not believe how much cheaper the diesel was. On the day of my fill they were 8.0 cents cheaper than anyone elese on 8th stree. I asked how could they offer this price....Response was we want you to come back and it's an investment inot a customer relationship we seek....Holy crap what a response....they got my attention and respect for that matter.

Smokes are cheaper at Gas Plus but they cant compete with Fire Creek. I don't pay the tax and I am not native.......The government is so stupid sometimes what a freebe

I have purchased fuel from every one and I find that the major gas stations including federated do not seem to appreciate my business. No relationship, no friendly greeting just take my money. Furthermore no real deal on the fule or cstore items always high in price. I get stupid points or dividends and sometimes cash collector dollars which do not add up to be much of anything plus I gotta keep track and 9 time out of 10 I loose this stuff. Which I suspect they are counting on me on doing so. Gas Plus the value is instant and they appreciate me coming to the sites most know my name....each time I look at the money made by the majors in annual reports I just shake my head. I am no longer the customer with publically traded companies I am the means of profit to those whom are shareholders.While they can control what I pay per litre they cannot control whom I support. I often wonder what we would all pay if Gas Plus was not present in the City

I Use Gas Plus all the time always value.

I met the owner of Gas Plus and his attitude towards offering consumers value seems to be his number one priority. A good company whom offers good value and Independent.

I asked him how he could offer the extra value to consumers.

His response was " sometimes we can't but offer it anyway "

Customers are required to operate any business and this one is not an exception. We build relationships while offering good value at the same time. The combination creates our objectives

That being " repeat customers "

I use Cree Way all the time. No one can compete with the smoke prices I get here. If you know someone at cree way they will punch in a trey number for you and bang you got cheap smokes. I feel no guilt what so ever. Goverment tax on smokes is stupid

I use Gas Plus in Lakview.

Use cree way sometime

poorboys cheap gas also use to be cory park esso on route to vanscoy

I have always supported independents in the market place where I can find them. The business of " Service Stations " specific to independents is difficult to find. Gas Plus however seems to have figured out what works. As others close they continue to expand. As others jack the price they hold it done to always provide consumer value. They do not operate mutipile million dollar facilities which I suspect allows them to out compete most anybody. As a consumer I want the best price I can find and do not want to pay more due to an overbuilt service station by a major which was funded by the refinery arm as oposed to the site. Competition is great and without companies as Gas Plus we would all pay more. If you have never used Gas Plus give them a try. Great value and No arogance that comes with dealing at a major company

I have reviewed several of the comments and admit never used Gas Pluss, So decided to try location in Saskatoon. I was served well and found the price on fuel was 2 cents less than others. I am satisfied and will continue to use these guys. Attendent informed me fuel in the tanks was supplied by petro canada

Frank said...

Interesting group this Gas Plus. Sites seem to be popping up all over. More interesting is they are not real concerned about matching the other sites around them. Always lower and always doing there own thing. Nice to see for a change. My service was ok and no different than any other site I have visited. The price 3 cents lower than others so overall I am satisfied and would likely return.

Cree way cheap smokes and no Tax Man. Dont need to be first nations either wink wink nod nod

Bill said...

Gas Plus in Lakeview is very easy for me to use as I live in the community. No matter what time of day I always get a good deal on my fuel never need to even check 8th street. Whom ever runs the site always keeps the gas price up to 3 cents and even 4 to 5 cents cheaper than all the rest.

how can you go wrong....and no one forces me to buy groceries to obtain my savings...or that game.

Lafond said...

Gas Plus ??

Cree Way your Way

Cindy said...

Gas Plus is not Gas Plus it's operated by petro canada under the name Gas Plus. This is the only way they can give the deals they do to consumers on fuel price. Marketing ploy....want pretty go to petro canada want a deal go to Gas Plus
petro canada has it covered on both sides...personally I don't care and choose the deal on fuel

I have used Gas Plus at all location when travelling the city and can say it is not as good as people think. NO CHILDREN allowed!!!!To save 3 cents I have to leave my child in the car. I am sorry on a 50 ltr fill that is a whole $1.50 savings, to leave my child in the car NOT GOOD. I find the store filthy, and half of the staff are high, or drunk when working. The one on Central smells like pot, and the one on 51st smells like booze. I am not sure if the fat toothless dirty guy realizes that customers can hear his comments and smell him, to whomever the owner of this company is, it would be in your best interest to find better. People forget that S'toon is a small town and when you hear rumours, they tend to stick in peoples head. I will not be going there anymore for sure!

To anonymous that posted before me- I AGREE. I think most of the good compliments on here are from the owner.I don`t know what happened in the last year or so but it is a shame. Never had an issue there,but now I might as well shop on 20th and get more service.Sutherland is even a smaller town, and well don't think that people here have not noticed. Pretty sad !!! now I drive by and shake my head, what a joke!!!! It might as well be the crack store it used to be.

Chad said...

I have no complaints but respect others and how they view matters. At the end of the day buy where ever you want its your money and if you want to pay more elsewhere than thats why we live in a free country.

I agree on the no minors in the store not sure why this is something they continue to do.

Frank Burns said...

I will buy from whomever gives me the best deal. So far it's been Crea Way and Gas Plus in Saskatoon. If I am going to alberta I try to get to the boarder on my tank as gas is always cheaper to buy in alberta

Husky on Central is 1 cent more than Gas Plus. I think they are giving them some competition. Finally!!!

Reviewed some of the comments here. Interesting...
I am not one who cares what the price is on gas. I am out I but from whom is close at the time. This time I was near a Gas plus in sutherland Central ave. Yes the price was 4 cents cheaper than most...so good deal for me. Service was good but did not see anything about no minors. Perhaps they are not doing this anymore as my 13 son was with me and in the store. I had no issues..

Have noticed better deal at Costco so i engaged. yes better deal but it took so much of my time and sitting in line. I wanted to use my Costco membership card but could not use my credit card. I lost my turn in line and had to go inside and wait in line to get a cash card. What a pain in the ass and it took me well over 6o minutes to get my gas...keep your deal Costco not worth my time. Sometimes you get what you pay for...lol

I use Gas Plus and Costco but only when I am picking up something at Costco. Don't like the self serve thing or line ups. I like full serve at gas plus on central bu they are not all full serve in city. like how i am treated at gas plus which is pretty good. they know my name and brand of smokes I buy and it means nothing really but kind of nice.
