........explain to me how gas, can go from .98ltr / $3.71gal to 1.21ltr/ $4.58gal back down to 1.08ltr $4.09gal in less than a week? :brick:



I always feel we are being ripped off :moneyeyes: all the time and I can't imagine what it is like for courier companies and the like to figure out delivery fees when gas prices are so unpredictable. :roll:

It all has to do with a dart, a dartboard, and a guy in a room in a basement somewhere.

Are you saying the millennials are responsible for gas prices too?
It could be a baby boomer that has experienced regression......

Elon musk bought all of your nations refineries and is restricting output in a deliberate effort to force you to buy electric cars. Alberta is going to look awful strange with charging stations built in the middle of nowhere every hundred miles or so.

Anyhow back to the original question. Typically when a price spike like this occurs there has been some kind of disruption in supply. I could be an oil pipeline problem, refinery fire, refinery shutdown for maintenance, ...

They expect all the U.S. drivers to drive drunk over St. Patricks day weekend and the gouging has bleed over into Canada.

But the prices go up quickly as soon as the "event" happens, same gas in the storage tank, and comes down much slower.

Having to use premium now is a price shock in itself :D

Here they always blame it on switching over to summer blend fuel, though I'd think they'd have that pretty much dialed in after all these years.

I think the market's jittery over Canada's repeated threats to invade the US...
I invaded Montana for a few days in my F150. Filled up from bone dry in Kalispell for $65 US./$87 Can.
I can't fill my truck here at home for $75 US / $100 Can.!

You can thank all of the socialists who insist on "free" stuff from your government. That "free" money has to come from somewhere.

I go over into Ohio and gas goes from $2.859 per gallon to $2.359 per gallon. The difference is all taxes.

Don't get used to it Skrap. The bill is deadlocked right now because they can't decide HOW MUCH to increase the gas tax. Dewine wants .11/.20 per gallon increase of gas/diesel. The senate passed a .06 last week. Dewine has to sign it Sunday to have it take effect 7/1. So this summer, you probably aren't going to see the relief from crossing the border that you are used to seeing.
