the reason gas prices go up is because people do buy gay cars like the prius and gas companies want to have the same profit they had when every american drove a v8 so they jack the price up and filling up the prius will end up costing you as much as it did to fill up a suv 10-15 years ago. so the people who always drove high displacement, high octane cars have the right to bitch.

OMG is this a repost from last summer???????? LOL honestly its something you have to expext by now, Don't forget to blame the banking/finacial system/trades who buy and sell oil like stocks, market goes up, oil prices go up.

your either gonna pay the tax on the gas or they will raise another tax to make up for it!!

At least they finally got most of the 401 repaved with the money they taxed at the pumps!!!

stick to what you know, bro, because you know nothing about the oil and gasoline markets.

did you mod them all? non-m motors stock handle 89 just fine. 87 is another story. Mind you i use 91 anyways, but 89 doesn't knock. 87 will.

I think the wall street sharks got too greedy. Prices are dropping below a dollar, at least for the 87 octane crowd.

The thing that gets me is why are we paying at least 50 cents more a gallon for premium if you compare the prices to the states. when oil was 140$ a barrel what were the prices like $1.30 or so? by this logic gas should still be at $.75!!!

unfortunately i don't think 'logic' and 'gas price' can be included in the same conversation.

not a joke brah, even though I'm pretty timmid most of the time, there are times that I'm so filled with anger that I'm willing to act out my thoughts.

They keep saying Canada is a great democracy country, from many levels, I agree, I love it here and I call this country home, I would defend it if necessary, but yet, all these politicians are so useless that at times, it feels like being a Canadian is about being a wuss too, let other toss us around.

The so called Canada and USA count as one when comes to economy, yea sure, we count as one when there's billions of barrels of oil sitting in Alberta, we count as one when there's a war, but why are we paying for so much more than the citizens of USA? are we any less than they are? I don't considered anyone from any country less than I am cause their citizenship. We pay the most taxes in North America in this province, we probably have one of the highest cost of living, we've got winter, we've got to have cars, we pay 13% taxes, the very little joy that most of us enjoy is driving, or that joy requires us to drive somewhere, let it be walk down the beaches, or go the St. Lawrence market, we gotta drive, with the gas price keep going on the rise and the government talking about an election that no one understands the need of it, and watching young people dying in Afghanistan for not much reasons other than helping out our neighbor. I do get angry, I do want to let the anger known, that's what democracy is about.

**** those mother****ers that have no ethics, no morals, I pay my taxes and donate to sick kids hospital, I give out what I can to the homeless even if they take that money and go buy more booze, its about being human, otherwise we are no less than those so call "beasts" that we hear from childhood stories.

So I say **** yea, behead the mother****ers.

I don't blame you; actually I understand you as much as anyone can. Just today I was reading an article in the star about this guy who is just flat out pissed at the city. Frankly speaking we need more angst ridden people in this country.

I think a lot of people who have come to this country are just happy to be here. Those who were born here aren't much different. Neither of these 2 groups could care any less outside of living their regular candy coated lives, trying to make a quick buck and getting laid while the gov't and the corporations take full advantage of them. Kind of like being bent over and pretending that nothing's happening.

A few more like you and we'll have a better shot and improving this country.

Gas prices are going up again tomorrow.
