Everyone still thinks I'm nuts. It's not a matter of I told you so, it's a matter of quit complaining and be more FE or get a better car and not expect the government to do something about it. Even if fuel gets to $5.00 a gallon most will just say man it cost me $130 to fill my ______. The government needs to do something about it.

The cheapest gas in town today is $3.61 CAD/US gallon. Still a ways to go to beat my city's record of $4.56 CAD/US gallon. Nearly $50 to fill my tank if we see those prices again (which we most likely will).

At least the high prices are boosting my resale value of my Geo here. I saw a '96 model a little while ago with over 200K on it and they wanted $4,000 for it .

The 'normal' gas price in Regina today has hit $1.139 CAD per litre, a 7 cent jump overnight. It's getting close to our all-time-record of $1.195. The cheapest place in town has also risen to $1.049/L.

On the CTV news, it was reported that gasoline is predicted to hit $1.40 per litre this summer ($4.68 US per US gallon). Watch as they'll be practically giving away early 2000s-model SUVs. *evil grin*

I really wonder if the supply/demand/price curves are working.... Sure, WE drive for max efficiency... But does an additional 20 cents make the other guy at the pump drive differently? Less? Any change? I mean, I'm always hearing "oh, a few cents more only means another dollar compared to before."

Well... I guess I'm thinking for longer term preservation of supply... NOT maximization of supply profits...

Well, I'm happy -- four 10 miles trips today - mixed driving.. 40+mpg for the Jetta gasser off the SG If I can do that for my road trip... That's less than 75 gallons for nearly 3000 miles

I remember seeing the prices in Vancouver on TV. Yikes ! There's virtually no reason to drive a car that has more than 4 cylinders these days.

I find this quote funny:
Quote:
Liberal MP Dan McTeague said the price hike could not have come at a worse moment for Canadians.
"It's not only that they're angry. It comes on the heels of filing their taxes last evening - it comes on the heels of being told that as a result of the hike in gasoline prices mainly interest rates are not going to be coming down - and it also comes on the heels of having to dig a lot deeper into their pockets compared to this time last year," McTeague said.
Cran said his group was surprised the constant price hikes have not led to civil unrest.
"We're probably too nice in Canada," he said.
"We don't see riots. I don't know at what figure Canadians turn nasty."
I think a price that suddenly goes from $1.149 to $2.00+ would see some real civil unrest. $2 a litre would mean almost $80 to fill the Geo. Filling up an ordinary car or suv would just be insane.
