Why did they search your car? Were you bringing something back without declaring it?

0.94, 0.96, 0.98 respectively for the three grades at Texaco.

The cheaper gas stations ie: "Can-Am" has Regular at 0.90/L

I go to Texaco - which uses Chevron gas (since texaco is owned by Chevron), hell it's even got the "with Techron" label on their pumps!

The "pricyness" of the the 3 big stations are as follows (from most to least)
Shell -> Chevron -> Texaco.

I think it has to do with their location more than anything though... Shell is the closest to the border while Texaco is the furthest.

Isn't texaco right across tsb?

I'm going to be heading down there next week to get some packages but I usually always use Chevron gas. Didn't know it was the same as Texaco. I'll fill up with Texaco this time.

How are the line ups during the weekdays? Like tuesday morning? I wanna head down there before class.

It really depends, going in will take like 5 to 10 minutes.

BUT, coming back into Canada varies through out lunch time.

Went down this morning at 12:00. Even with nexus, I waited a.good 15 minutes to get into the states. Coming back thigh the nexus line was empty since they were just waving cars by. (regular line has probably a 30 minute line)

Ok I have a question. Since Point Roberts is the US why do they sell gas in liters? I never thought of that until now.

They advertise the prices in $/L but the pumps go by $/Gallon at least for Shell anyway.
