    I paid about $4.30/gal for regular a few days ago. Gas in CA is always more expensive because of the special formulation required for smog abatement. It's part of the cost of living in Paradise.

    Dont complain you cannot possibly be paying what we do.

    After the 3 cents a litre drop this weekend and taking into account that our loonie is at 1.03 to the greenback, with 3.78 litres being equal to a US gallon we are paying

    1.33 per litre * 3.78/1.03 = US Dollar 4.88 a gallon.

    Beat that . You have to laugh otherwise you cry. And to think we supposed to be an oil producer and exporter. There is a tax of 13% included in that price per litre. Thats 65 Canadian cents on the gallon is tax.

    This high gas price has cause many to change their daily plans significantly. We saw a 50% drop in kids playing football this year. If a family is on a fixed income its tough to find the extra loot not only for the subs but the driving around. Yesterday we travelled 45 minutes each way for sons scrimmage. Next weekend it will be a whole day to Hamilton and back.


    Here is a useful site to know of its got the whole USA gas prices and theres another one for the Canadian side.

    I paid $4.03 at Costco on Friday which is usually about .25 per gallon less than other places. It was up from $3.70, the week before. Scary paying over $50 for just a little over a half tank.

    Good thing I only go to town once a week.

    Yup. $80 fillup if the Sienna is near E -- 60 liters.

    We already drive less than most (I cycle to work), but we've tried to cut back even more to avoid small trips.
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    $4.01 today, $4.26 last Tuesday or Wednesday
    Can't complain here about the price too much though... I'm not working and the wife works about 8-10 blocks from home...probably burn more gas in the yard tools than she does going to work.
