i went to get gas this morning and i was dismayed to see that the price went up to 1.12/l and although the gas in Toronto is apparently cheaper than in other parts of Canada, it still expensive.

With all the whining that comes out of Toronto about "the environment" :roll: McGuilty should slap a 20 cent a liter tax on gas...I wonder how that would go over :lol:

Don't you feel the scale economies of an industry so vertically and horizontally integrated?

Why would you care? you are constantly nagging about the oil sands"destroying the environment" I would think you would be happy when the price goes up.

I just don't see any opportunities to beat the system, if prices go up, I pretty much have no choice but to pay it. To me, the cost of a tin can car isn't worth the savings in fuel.

We are already doing the one thing that makes a difference in my family, my wife and I are able to commute together, and we've been doing that since January.

It's a self-inflicted tax wound. Don't feel bad for them.

oh well, still can get gas for $2.97 a Gallon here.

1 US gallon = 3.78541178 litre

Which means I am paying 0.79 cents per litre.

It's funny how The United States get 48% of it gas from Canada and only 18% from the middle east, but pays less than it's supplier.

Canadians = OWNED!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

In Houston, TX it's even cheaper. LOL

What's funny is that American's are crying about the price at the pump too. :idea: :?:

They want to drill more oil in the USA, and cut out foreign oil. Poor Alberta. :cry: :lol:

I don't mean to be so frank, but get used to the higher prices of transport fuel. If you want a good idea of how high you should expect automotive fuel, look to the EU even without the petrol taxes. In most countries there it is about twice as expensive as ours. However, realize that they have had high gas prices for a while now, and there hasn't been any disaster. Market forces have moved towards higher fuel efficiency vehicles and a better public transport system.

I am completely against needlessly high taxes, but at times I wonder if a tax on gas would help make the transition easier and get ourselves accustomed to realistic fuel prices, because most people don't realize that next to countries like Kuwait, North America is lucky to have low fuel costs.

Unfortunately we are a big country, but 76% of our population lives within the 15 biggest Census Metro Areas, so that should give hope for a more efficient system of public transport.
