you know what happened in my opinion? a few people started talking about $4+ per gallon, the rumor spread, and gas station owners figured "what the hell? if they are expecting it, let'* do it!" most didnt, the few that did had to come down or get busted for gouging, and now everyone is slowly coming down below $3. hooray, i can get premium for $3.19! what a damn bargin!!!! i would just love to hear the news come on tonight and say, "oil prices skyrocket again today, youre all being screwed and you cant do a damn thing about it! aaaahahahahahah!" cut to commercial....
at least that would be honest.

It'* not double that, and keep in mind that your gallon is 3.78 litres, and Can. is 4.55. In other words the canadian gallon is larger. To put it simply, 93 octane here is about $4.00 US in your gallons.

good catch..i forgot canada had its own gallons....still 4.55 for regular is a bit high. however canada jobs pay more than the US.

Canada used to work on Imperial gallons which is the English system...it'* the US that had its' own smaller gallon.

A little bit of trivia for you buffs

The US has 2% of the world population, 5% of known oil reserves but consumes 25% of the global daily oil production.

P.*. Oil and gasoline inventories in the US are currently above this time last year and above the 5 year average.

Cheers,

idk, I just got 93 for 3.04 at speedway (speedy rewards ftw!), and 87 is a good 2.89. I think people are freaking out too much about this, since most of our gas is from Texas/OPEC, and don't forget about ethanol.

back in 2001, i remember gas here was as low as .95/gal and the average was around 1.10 at the time, i was consistantly paying between .99 and 1.05 for about a month
