O/T: Welcome to $4/gal gasoline

Page 1 of 5  
Continued unrest in the MidEast.
How long before $5/gal gasoline.
Noticed the cost of food lately?
You betcha, let's dig for more oil, that's the answer.
Wonder why the 5th fleet is located where it is.

Here in Canada, where we have all the oil sands and export most to the US, gasoline in Ontario costs $1.15 per litre, at 4 litres per gallon, that is $4.60 per gallon. Don't complain about $3.00 to $4.00 a gallon because that is a bargain, and it is probably made from the same Canadian oil that our overpriced gas is made from.

4.54 l per Imperial gallon 3.78 l per US gallon. (French sucked them in to a standard and then changed...again)
That would make it $5.22 per Imperial gallon
$4.34 per US gallon.
The US just needs to get a bigger gallon or change to metric (as they started in '55) and cut their unit price by almost a factor of 4.

Apparently that "free" health care has to be paid for somehow, who knew?

Healthcare is NOT free. In Ontario, all employers have to pay a premium for each employee, and each employee has to pay a premium for healthcare that is added on to the annual income tax total.

What about health care for someone who isn't employed - is that free?

Of course, that was my point, that sooner or later, one way or another, you pay for it.

Right, but so many US residents (particularly far right Republicans) seem to be convinced that Healthcare is provided free to everyone. Yes, children and those who cannot work are covered at no cost to themselves, just the same as police protection, fire fighters and other services that are paid out of tax revenues. Not everything is covered, there are still many procedures, services or treatments that must be paid for by those requesting them.

Yes, Americans have weird views of Canadian health care. Few of them actually know how it works, yet half of them think it's a "free" health care paradise, and the other half think it's flaming socialism with year-long waits to get a bandaid.

It doesn't. He just had to inject his last word comment and that was all that came to mind.

You have been trolled. The discussion was about gas prices and Devvy decided to toss in health care.

The primary difference among prices for gasoline is taxes.

Wow! NO. U.S. aloneness, in measurement, education is needed.
US gallon has 128 ounces Imp gallon has 160 ounces.
Ratio is of Imperial to US gallons is aprox 6 : 5 by volume.
