Default I never thought I would see...

Gas prices jump so high so quick. This morning there are places close to the city I am in that already hit 1,219$ per litre, that is about 4,60$ per gallon, and that is for the CHEAP STUFF. So that mean premium is sitting around 4,99$ per gallon.


I know I always find it funny to see the people in the U.*. complain about gas prices when they are paying close to 2,00$ previously, but prices that high up here are stupid. Especially since Alberta produces so much oil, maybe it is time to start keeping Alberta oil for ourselves and NOT export it, lol.

driving down one street here in Rochester, there was a gas station with mid grade at 2.72 a gallon and then a half mile down the road there was one with mid grade at 2.89 gallon. major difference that will only be getting worse.

I just paid $3.39 per gallon. Put in just over 7 gallons and it cost me $25.

Oh well, nothing I'm gonna do about it....just suck it up and bear it. Getting mad about it does nothing in the long run.
