Canadians and Americans have it pretty sweet in terms of petrol prices.
1 Barrel of unrefined oil cost roughly $140 at the mo
So at $4 a gallon you are paying 73 cents per gallon towards the processing, transportation and retailer costs. Think about it people!

We take oil from sand, send the oil to the States to get refined into gas then it's shipped back here.

The reason our gas is so expensive is because of taxes. We have the Fuel taxes, provincial taxes, federal excise taxes, GST. You take away some of those, or make them reasonable and things would be peachy.

I just did a brief search on the net and what came back regarding canadian gas tax sure shocked me. From what I read, about 1/3rd of the price at the pump is taxes. It also must be considered that government is taxing the gas companies on every dollar profit they make...which makes even more of that price go to taxes.
