The president and vice-president of the country have large investments in the oil industry. They also decide the country'* energy policy. Is anyone really surprised that the cost of gas is going up?

If you want to make up for the rising cost of gas, my Dad found a way that has worked out very well for him: He invested in oil company stocks. The several extra thousand dollars he made has more than made up for the extra cost of filling his tank.

I think that'* the best solution I can offer.

oh stop complaining im paying 99.9 for ultra 94 so here'* the math

1.00 Canadian is 1.13 US

there are 4.54 Canadian liters per gallon So 1.00X4.54= 4.54 Canadian
4.54/1.13=4.07 per gallon US


and even doing it the other way im still paying more then 3.00 a gallon

SO STOP COMPLAINING lol

You pay $3.46 per Gallon. Canadians use different gallons. Still $18 a tank more than what I pay.
