It seems like every time we go by a gas station, the price has gone up again. Filled car today at $3.799 a gallon  and snowmobile / lawn mower gas at $4.019 a gallon. Filled my snowmobile Monday at a cost of $41.00! I am curious what gas is priced for you guys.

In my neck of the woods, 89 octane goes for $1.29 per litre,  That is $4.87 per U.S. gallon.

Ouch! I just dont understand why it is so much. In Minnesota we pay about 31 cents per gallon in taxes.

It was $3.79 yesterday who knows today.

Along that line the company that owns Olive Garden, Red Lobster and a Steak House chain(forget the name) said profits would be down 1/3 in the first quarter of this year due to ,Gas Prices, Payroll Tax increase and Winter Just read in in the news.  Makes sense to me, I only have so much money and it's all relative

On one of my Army trips to Germany, one of the guys commented that the price of gas there wasn't as bad as he heard.

 

I told him wait a minute, the price is in German Marks and the quantity is in Liters. I told after you figure the exchange rate it was at twice what we were paying in the States.

 

He said Oh I hadn't thought about that.

We went from$ 3.69 to $3.97 in two days. as soon as the snow storm started this way the gas prices jumped. People were lined up to get it.  Any reason to gouge us again!!!!   Rick

Regular is 137.9/litre and rising here. That's 5.24/US gallon. Premium you can add another 30cents or so. The difference is all taxes. Federal Gas tax, Provincial gas tax and then on top of it all our much loved 15% provincial Harmonized Sales Tax or HST for short. It may have gone up today, I'm not sure. Our prices are set every Friday at 12:01 AM. This is about as high as I've seen it. It may have been higher in 2008 because I remember diesel topping out at 1.45/litre right after I got the 2320. Fortunately it's easy on fuel.
