You guys have it pretty darned good south of the 49th in my book. I rushed out to fill up last night on cheap gas at $1.359 per litre ($5.144/gallon); thereby avoiding todays jump to $1.421/l ($5.479/gallon) that hit Vancouver, British Columbia (prices for regular).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't your Canadian gvt add a schiedtload of taxes to the price which makes it thus? They sure do to everything else it seems.

Not quite as bad as the UK where the tax rate for petrol is 60% including VAT. Looks like they're the highest in the EU too. I got all that from this btw-

All I remember from my visits to the UK is that a US gallon is about the equivalent of about $9 right now!

You are certainly correct about that - just like it's taxes that are artificially inflating gas prices for everyone. Certainly in Europe and Australia we are paying more taxes than in Canada, and this is due to the decisions made by our (supposedly representative) elected officials - but it still doesn't make it any easier to take; much like the idea that we are paying around $2.00 per gallon doesn't make the fact that the average taxation on U.S. gas per gallon is only $0.50 easier to take for Americans.


Sucks. Major league.

And I'll stop here before I go into a rant.....

Been dropping regularly, 3 or 4 cents a day. I don't expect this current drop rate to continue for long though.

It is now $2.99/gal as of noon today.

Sorry, I don't know how I missed it. As for putting up with it, we have no choice I'm afraid.

I wouldn't be surprised if the prices are back up around $4 by election day. . . .

Hanging at around $3.81 here for the past week. The WA state average is about .10 less than that but apparently around here the oil companies seem to think they can jam us. Always been that way. And what sucks is that the prices for food haven't dropped.

Average fill for me right now is around $45.

Cheers?

Gassed up today, mid-grade at $3.99.9. . . . sigh At least I didn't have to pay the $4.24.9 for high (yet)

May I presume most others are in simular situations?

Been going up steadily here in the past few weeks. Now at $4.21 in my area, but about .10 less in the greater Seattle area.

Apparently there was a fire at one of the few refineries in WA state which put it out of commission for the time being. And they're blaming it on that and having to import more gas from Cali.

And then a refinery in Cali had a fire so then they blamed that.

And then Hurricane Issac reduced production in the Gulf, and they blamed it on that.....

Now they're saying prices should start falling as the refineries start switching from summer blends to winter ones. A-yup.

Evil or Very Mad

All I can say is I'm damn glad I got rid of my gas guzzler a few years ago.



Cheers,

RR

We are expected to see another "Quantitative Easing". The dollar will continue to decline if we continue to spend it like toilet paper.

At $4.10/gal or so around these parts. Still wouldn't trade my 4Runner "Greta" for anything. 22MPG ain't really good, but she never strands me, financially or physically.

Cool

Greta's got 263K on her odo, I fully expect her to cruise well into the 300K's. She's a '97.

From the people I know who have them and seeing how they last, you outta get at least 300-k's out of that thing, and quite possibly 350-k or more.

135K is barely broken in...

...about 50K miles ago, I parked next to a guy who had a 1998 'Runner that had 510K. Laughing

Good thing I like that truck. Cool

Just to make you guys feel a bit better: I filled my new car up for the second time today - before I went out I did a search on http://www.petrolprices.com, the cheapest diesel within 15 miles of me was 8 miles away at Bude, where it was selling for 142.9p per litre. That's 649.6p per gallon, which equates to $10.41. It had about 1/8th of a tank left, and I filled it to the top. I walked away with a bill just over 96 or $153.72
