At The End Of The Day...

....I can't think of anywhere else in Canuckistan where the price of gasoline fluctuates 5 cents a litre every morning and night.

I mean, we're talking 23 cents an imperial gallon here.

What the heckfire?

BC elects Christy Clark on the basis of LNG trillions and next thing you know iconic bridge salesmen, Florida swampland realtors and other shysters can't beat pathways to us fast enough---including merchants peddling the holy goo of the automobile.

NVG & Scotty--

Is there goo where those pennies came from?




Maybe it's because Apache pulled out of Kitimat and they all follow Chevron's lead?

Its because Canada is the land of collusion for business. And the government gets taxes on top of what the companies charge so artificially high prices means more taxes for the government. There is no reason for them to try to keep business honest. Back east a couple years ago the competition bureau caught gas stations colluding because they have the authority to tap phones.
