That's terrible. What's your summer car?

And, on topic, I rarely buy gas up here anymore. $40 savings on average per trip.

I can deal with my 91 tune. So what, 4 less hp and 5 less lb/ft of torque or something like that.

fuck the media, i blame the media for all this... they hype up all the stories about gas and gas prices. Its not like I can't see the damn price going up, and its not like the price is going to go down just because they do a story about it. If anything it would make prices go up faster because people are expecting it to go that high. We need to have another gas strike day or something.

Speculation is a big issue I believe; When it was last 1.50/L the price per barrel was about $150, today the barrel closed around $109.

I think we're seeing that this cartel doesn't play by the rules. Crude oil use is down, yet the price is climbing even higher these days.

Imho, buy shares in Exxon or Husky gas, and only use that company. Then you can enjoy their profits (husky pays a handsome dividend) buying something you need anyway. After that, buy a bike and take up pedalling. At least then you're only feeding the beast that gives something back, and getting in better shape at the same time.

My car takes 89, so, no, I don't care. If I was driving a car that required 94, I would not be concerned about rising gas prices.

Only if you're stupid. Cars that are tuned for 91 will have worse fuel economy than if you paid the extra ten percent to fill up with premium.

4.5% return with dividends, not too shabby! Though, I am partial with my booze stocks as well as other controversial/un-ethical stocks.. LOL

Petro Canada in Coquitlam is still 131.9. Long line ups though...

The whole financial system needs an overhaul. We're all paying through our fucking ears, while a select few are reaping the profits. I don't want to hear about free market ideology, at the end of the day we need to decide if this ability to speculate is truly for the greater good of our society.

We're being played like fools here, the excuses for the price fluctuation is one big joke.

Sun article says in Metro Van, you're paying 39.1 cents in tax on every litre +5% GST on top of that. Time for tax protest.
