Hey, considering the day I've had, I'll gladly pay for "Premium" right about now.

Gas in the States is Cheap compared to gas in Canada. Right now gas is 79.9 Cents per litre in Calgary. A small Jetta should not cost $40.00 to fill. Man i'm going to have to start riding my bike at this rate.

Hey Greg... you've got it good, it's 84.9 here... and they're talking about adding PST onto gas too, which would raise it to about 88.1... OUCH

It's given me added incentive to learn how to drive my mom's car (a standard), because I can't afford to drive my dad's big beast of a truck anymore!

Hmmm I'm not sure I want to walk to the next show. it's about 2.5 hours highway driving. if i leave now i might make it in time.

But these gas prices are due to the unrest in the middle east, and USA's threat to attack.

Even though here in Canada we produce our own oil. Yay OPEC!

89.9!!! Wow! The highest it's been here is 83.9. It's 79.9 now. I don't complain about fuel costs anymore though... company vehicle, company gas. o> Just thought the pic was funny.

LoL DragnDrop. I hope tommorrow is better.

That means you are paying about 40 cents per litre. I would consider yourself lucky. We supply the states the gas, but because of all of the taxes imposed on the gas we pay , well double what the americans have to pay. Tell me how that is fair.
