Skeena-Bulkley Valley residents peeved about the price at the pump are getting a pledge from Nathan Cullen.
The NDP candidate says the federal New Democrats remain committed taking action on what he calls unfair price gouging on gas.
Cullen says British Columbians consistently pay above the national average and the Northwest pays way well about the provincial average.
With Canada importing half of its oil from overseas, Cullen says one of the solutions to shielding ourselves from volatile markets is by refining more at home.
He says that would also create more Canadian jobs.
