We have no say to the price of gas. We can't just write a complaint about this, I wish it was that easy. They price it, we pay it. Use transit, ride a bike, buy a fuel efficient car or keep paying it.

I try to carpool and take transit when I seriously don't need to use the car.

truth

by buying up resource mutual funds, you're acting as a speculator driving up oil prices

but from taylor's point of view, as a rational person, obviously if theres personal profit to be made, who the fck cares abt higher gas prices

MBNA Smartcash Mastercard has 5% Cashback with gas stations for first 6 months, then 3% afterwards.

This card comes in handy at times like these. But i really wished it weren't the case.

I'm so glad I don't have a sports car now...
With harder speeding penalties now, there really is no point in getting one either.

Actually, it pretty much does cost me $20 to fill up my R6 from empty (but I use 94 octane)

If this were true I wouldn't mind higher gas prices, at least then I could justify it then. Heck, i'd welcome it.

What I don't welcome though, is Translink taking the money and then not doing anything really productive with it
