2.79 to 3.29: Just rode around town to fill up and checked
various places before I chose one.
: It's $2.79 here in Chipley, FL, in the central Panhandle. That
was an hour
: ago - probably higher now.
: "VISTA" is an acronym for the top five Windows problems:
: Intrusions, Spyware, Trojans and Adware.
Get ready for higher prices than that. I hear the pipeline that supplies 75%
of Georgia with gasoline is inoperable.
It just jumped to $3.30 here in the Southern Michigan / Northern Indiana
area for regular unleaded. I bet it goes up even more before it gets better.
And when I took the family to the neighborhood pizza joint for an early
dinner, the three stations I passed had huge lines around them. But driving
home after dinner, the lines were gone--- because there was no more gas :-(
Well last night it was $1.09 CDN per Litre of Regular gas. This morning it
was up to $1.15 and at noon it was $1.21. This evening they are saying it
will go to about CDN$1.30 per Litre here in Montreal, Canada.
Will about 3.78 Litres to a US Gallon, and todays exchange rate of about
CDN$0.84 to USD$1.00, it comes to about
USD$4.12 per US Gallon!!!! Damn that's starting to hurt... I guess my 72
Riviera will be staying in my garage for a while... So much for all the joy
Yesterday afternoon on the way to the store (Western Michigan) many were
$2.999, but one still $2.699. On the way back from the store, the latter
was up to $2.999 as well. When I mentioned the sudden increase to the
customer at the pump next to me, she said that it had jumped from $2.699
to $2.999 while she was getting her CC out of her purse.
This morning some were up to $3.299.

the ever-growing pot of cybersoup:
San Antonio $2.56 yesterday, $2.65 at 6 pm today. Diesel about the
same. Filled my Diesel p/u Sat. for $2.37. Luckily I got a little Ford
Aspire to putt around in -- about 33 mpg in town, 40+ on the road, maybe
a little less running the a/c. Gonna fill it up in a little while.
Such is the case. When you are close to the source and there are
executives in the area they have more easy access to the local
politicians and can get away with more stuff. Thats my theory. Texas
produces beef, but if you buy it there you pay a hefty tax. But I'd pay
it cause its so tasty in Texas, lol.
Canadian dollars are worth less than US dollars. About 84 cents at the
current rate of exchange.
$4.80 in Ontario (Canadian) dollars is about $4.00 per US gallon in US
Since there are approx 3.78 litres in a US gallon; 4.00/3.78 = about 1.06 US
Here in Easternmost Canada we are paying around $1.15 to $1.30 (Averaging
say $1.25) per litre, in Canadian funds at the pump.
So 3.78 * 1.25 = approx $4.73 Canadian which equals 4.73 * 0.84 = 3.97 US
currency per US gallon. BTW in this part of Canada we are pumping it
offshore from under the ocean and also refining some of it onshore, right

Just because it is produced and refined locally has little to do with
the price you are paying. The same goes for the taxes (I'm all for
tax cuts, but only if they go back in the consumers' pockets, which
will not happen with gas taxes).
Two months ago, I was in Edmonton on business and filled up the rental
car for a certain price (the actual price isn't important, so I won't
mention it in order to avoid readers from crying!). When I returned to
Toronto, I noticed the gas price was EXACTLY the same.
But the oil mostly comes from Alberta, so shouldn't it be cheaper there?
More importantly, even though the federal taxes are identical in both
places, the Alberta government charges 7 cents per litre while the
Ontario government charges 14.7 cents per litre.
At the retail level, the price will be whatever they feel the consumers
