yeah, that was THE peak of gas prices. I think it maxed out at 1.51/L of regular, but oil prices were significantly higher back then too. Being 1.41/L a week ago in only Feb and oil being relatively cheap, there was and still may be definite risk of it surpassing the previous high this coming summer.

Maybe more. Because then you'd only try and go for a drive when the conditions are perfect and head straight for the driving roads. You'd take out your car far less often, and the less you get to see your car the more you enjoy it when you do.

There'd probably be a lot less traffic too, I'm looking forward to that.

I remember when they were in the $0.7x's/L but thats it. And that would have been early/mid 90's.

Cheapest I can remember was maybe when I was about 5-7 years old.
I was in car with my mom in a big line of cars waiting to fill up with gas @ 33.5 cents a liter.

This is the main reason I had my car tuned on 91. I can hop across the border and fill up for cheap...

That being said, when I come home I am buying an old 80's motorcycle and building another cafe racer. That will be my summer transportation if the gas prices keep going up.

Filled up this morning at Sumas. It was $4.239 / gallon.

On the way back, my car that was chosen at random to be checked. Lady told me to park it and she walked around. Opened the rear door and saw the jerry can. She told me, "Just a heads up, gas jerry cans are subject to tax." I wonder if it's the way things are going to be from now on.
