Here's what I can't figure out. American gas costs (in Canadian terms) 86.6 cents per liter. We are paying $1.17/liter and that is for Edmonton, which has the cheapest gas in Canada. Can anyone explain why my family pays 30% more for gas in Canada than in the USA, when we have more oil than probably any other country in the world? I'd like to know how that works, too.
nice thread. I recently came across the price in other countries here. It's pretty interesting

Conclusion. So smarty-pants how do you stop those pernicious speculators? EASY. The No Re-Sale Rule. No entity can re-sell crude oil for sixty days. You can’t buy today and sell tomorrow making good money at a dime or a quarter rise in the PPB. Price per barrel. You have to HOLD your buy for 60 days, before you can resell it. That makes it a whole different ball game. This same 60 days to hold rule will CURE the periodic sharp rises in food prices too. It could spell the death knell to SPECULATORS before they KILL us. Let us STOP a couple hundred PRICE MONGERS around the world setting the price for our necessities.
Vote YES for the 60 days HOLD!

Just like a Cat on Heat, these Oil Thugs just do not have the stomach to come in front and say that they are on a Frenzy for Money.
Oil Business is like the Diamond Business, fully controlled by a few . . .

Oh, of course, it's the Jews. I should have known.
Yeah, I thought it might have something to do with perhaps slightly higher taxes or production costs, but I didn't think that could account for all of it, especially when the provincial government gives big oil all kinds of tax breaks and other free stuff. Where does the USA buy most of its oil? Does it come from Canada, the Mideast, or what? Some of it is local, I'm sure, but I doubt you have enough reserves to supply the whole nation.
Actually, "Oil Thugs" do "come in front." They hold annual festivals with names like "shareholder meetings," where they explain what they have done to improve the wealth of their employers, the shareholders. The people they answer to.
