Sucks to be in Vancouver right now. Only price probably higher is Europe.

Lots of people from here are filling up in Bellingham when they can, it's $3.82 per gallon there at Costco.

So: $3.82 USD per US gallon (at Costco in Bellingham) * 0.954 (convert to CAD) = $3.64428 CAD per gallon / 3.78 litres per US gallon = $0.96409 CAD/litre. Sigh.
with the crazy goverment here nothing is like they say i mean,

Suppose to be: 1$= 4.5 BSF (4500bs old nomination) but here you cant buy dollars as you want so i can only buy at this price 5000$ just for traveling anually, everything else you will pay in the black market 10bsf each dollar (10000bs old nomination)

so the gas here is 91bs per litre (old nomination) and 0.09BSF in the actual BSF.

so you get like 105 litres per Black market dolar or 46 litres at the official dollar cost.

Might run E85 on my next tank. Or I might wait a few more tanks and calculate my MPG and see what the drop is after the switch to E85. It is like $3 a gallon right now compared to $4.20 so if I only drop 1MPG its worth it!!

Got Diesel yesterday for $4.03. Regular gasoline is $3.89. I find it odd that diesel is not increasing as steadily as gas lately. A few weeks ago diesel was around 50 cents higher than regular unleaded, now we're at less than 15 cents different.

I paid $2.89 for gas on March 4, 2010. I paid $3.85 on March 3, 2011. I paid $4.15 on April 15, 2011.

Ridiculous!!!

Thats 31% in 13 months.

Little tidbit that released today:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/0...ec1_lnk3|59623

Quote:
The last of the Big Five oil companies announced first-quarter earnings Friday, so the totals are in. Between the five of them, ExxonMobil, BP, Shell, Chevron, and ConocoPhillips made $34 billion in profits in the first three months of 2011 -- up 42 percent from a year ago.
My favorite part:
Quote:
The average cost to produce a barrel of oil, including exploration, development, extraction and taxes, is about $30, according to a U.S. Energy Information Administration survey. The going rate to buy one is about $113.
