Like everyone else in the world who has to drive a car to do anything we were bit flabbergasted last week when we put gas in our pickup truck. Of course, we can't put in the cheap stuff, it has to be premium and at the Petro Canada over on Cambie, proceeded to watch Greig's head pop off at the $1.38/litre price. Stark contrast to the price of B4 Biodiesel of $0.96/litre.
When I first met Greig he drove a propane truck and we've had a few propane fueled vehicles since then. When we first started dating the price of propane was $0.28/litre and and then jumped up to $0.69 (not long after Nine-11). Now the propane is back down suddenly to $0.49. I am just waiting for the next jump back up which I think will be close to a buck a litre.
So, if the price gouging has you steamed up to go to voteonit.ca and express your ire with just a click of a button.
AHHH..feel better? I know I do.
Addendum to orginal post:
The CBC confirms it: Canadian are being gouged at the pumps. I especially like that bit about "the government having to pull its head out of the sand."
