$1.40 for premium... good god. I remember 10 years ago when gas was $0.50 a litre.






Well, this all but smashes any dreams of anything with boost or an inline-six as a first car... I'm NOT going to pay for premium and I'm NOT going to get 23mpg combined.

Basically hovering around a dollar a litre beforehand in the Toronto area, but we saw $1.21 this morning. They're back down to $1.03ish right now

That'* from $3.28 to $3.85 USD per gallon overnight and back down by mid day. WHAT THE HELL

When I bought my Bonnie at the very begining of 98, I can remember filling it at 1.09 a gallon... I used to drive a lot back then...

On the news today they said that the Orange County Public School system would not be providing any transportation for after school activities as they will not be recieving their shipment of fuel do to some of the refineries being shut down... so they have to conserve...

From what the news said we will be over $3.00 a gallon in less than a week... At that price the Bonnie is going to do a lot of sitting...

All I can tell you is that BP Ammoco and Mobil Exxon are seeing record profits
