    Squire can you explain? Because we're hella confused now. Tori, in the US, gas prices are displayed as say $2.39 (or 2.39) and we understand that this is meant as $2.39USD per gallon of fuel you purchase.

    Everywhere that isn’t the US they sell gas in litres, which is a little more than 1/4 of a US gallon (which is smaller than an imperial gallon).

    well on the sign it says 99.5 i think. which means 99.5 cents
    then changes to 1.05 which means $1.05
    therefore goes up 5.5 cents per litre

    Then it means you're the one getting robbed. You're purchasing 1/4 of what I am, so basically $0.99/liter which is roughly $4/gal

    The only thing that bugs me is they’re okay bumping prices 5 cents a gallon for higher grade in the US, and 5 cents a litre here, we gettin raped on premium fuel

    A few years ago the regular was something like $5.77/gal and that was shit. Because my truck at the time drank gas like hell - I have a much better full efficient truck now. But still even now with a 26 gallon tank that's $150.

    I remember the first time I crossed the border to fill up it was $1.40 a gallon, cost me $11 US to fill my car from empty. Went up a lot after, but it was always around 30 cents/litre cheaper when you figured the exchange coming from Vancouver

    Doesn't this have something to do with Canada's importing of fuel or something?

    Ding ding ding

    There used to be a predictable arc between oil prices and gas prices slightly skewed by regional taxes, pretty much 10 cents for every $10/barrel. Manufacturing costs dropped due to improving technology, The bitumen they use to make the fuel sells about $20/barrel less than sweet crude, but the oil companies made so much on $1.30/L fuel when oil was $130 that they’ve jacked that up a lot

    In Abbotsford BC (where it is usually the cheapest gas in the Fraser Valley) it is sitting anywhere between 131.9-137.9/L and anywhere closer to Vancouver is sitting in the 150's. GROSS.
    Also I JUST bought a 4x4 SUV so that's fun and guzzling my expensive gas but whatevs

    I still haven’t checked but in the Edmonton region it’s around 1.12? Maybe? I don’t go to the gas station very often
