Last week when I filled up it was 1.11 per liter. That works out to about 4.20 a gallon. It's probably a bit more now.
Funny how the country that gets the cheapest gas, worries the most about the price increases.
I guess we worry less up here, because when it goes up here, it's good for the industry, although, it's not good for the consumer that has to cut back
on other things.
If they start drilling into the gas and oil that is in the US, that hasn't been tapped into yet, prices may not go down like people expect, because
the infrastructure and pipelines need maintenance, and that costs a lot of money. Especially with the complaints I've seen on the news lately about
the US's pipelines getting too old, and not having proper shut off valves, and if the weather stays cold in the upcoming winters, pipelines have to be
watched closer if they aren't buried deep enough.
If those pipelines aren't maintained properly, there will be more explosions when things go wrong.
