Gas prices

Postby Procutus on Sat May 23, 2009 2:28 pm

Posters;

Just an observation, here in northern Ohio our prices at the pump jumped from $2.12 (what I paid a few days ago) to $2.49 a gal.

:shock:

I hope that this ridiculous increase is merely for the Memorial Day weekend and not an indication of a steady, upward trend for the entire summer. I drive 50 miles a day, round trip for work, and that begins to make incursions into my wallet, big-time. Can anyone else report prices from their areas? Just curious.


kind regards,


Procutus

I think over here we pay about £4.40 a gallon, which in dollars is probably around $9!

Perhaps I'd better get one of BI's mardi gras gay pride scooters.

Here's an interesting article about gas prices from last summer:
http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-w ... 9191.story

Jo and her fellow Londoners are among the hardest hit but our old pal Petter (Amundson) in Norway is feeling it the worst at $9.85 U.S. per gallon! On the other end of the spectrum is Venezuala where they are paying 82 times less than Norway at 12 cents U.S. per gallon! My city Toronto is in the middle of the pack at $4.98 U.S. per gallon so I guess I can't complain either.

Cheers,

In Nova Scotia, we have gas price regulation put in place by the government which sets the maximum price. This is done each Friday morning at 00:01 hrs and is in effect for the next 7 days.

Currently we are paying $101.9/liter which is up about $0.15 cents over the past three months.

1 US Gal = 3.785 liters

This works out to be $3.86 Can /US Gallon; however, if you are an American and buying gas in Canada with US funds, the American would spend (based on today’s exchange rate) of each US dollar being worth $1.1201 Canadian, a total of $3.19 US per US gallon in Canada.
1 imperial (UK) Gallon is 4.54609 liters which works out to be $4.63/ UK Gallon in Canada; however, for the UK citizen buying one UK gallon of petrol in Canada with Pounds, would cost $2.60 Pounds.

The above exchange rates are as of today, and which we know are the money market exchange rates, not the rates available to the traveler.

The real kicker is for Canada to be the largest supplier of oil to the US market, and even after shipping cost, they are able to sell it cheaper in the US than we do here in Canada...just to show you how much freaking taxes we pay.
