gas prices are high in the states as well. i went down a few days ago and it was like 3.49 in Blaine... That's almost $1/liter compared to like 80c/liter a few months ago....

It's not all of Canada, it's usually the people of BC that get ripped off.

They teased us at 1.50 before now they're really gonna give it to us if not more.

that $100+ government climate-change cheque you got in the mail recently? the rest of the world didn't get that either

prices in BC are generally higher because we have stiff carbon taxes included in the price of fuel
