Here in Southern Ontario, the fuel prices yesterday were at 89.9 cents per liter. Not as bad as the west coast yet.
Had one guy I was quoting tell me that "they" won't let the prices reach a dollar. Who is "they" I wonder. Think he was trying to get me to lower my price?
Didn't get his yard. Don't think I'd want it anyways.

2.25 here in KC. I filled one tank on my F250 and my 48 on Monday and it was 50 bucks. That will last me 2-3 days MAX.


Thanks Bush

I use Premium in all my equipment. I think I'm going to add a two or three dollar surcharge to all my invoices at the end of the month, what do you guys think?

LOL! You lost me with all that "litre" talk and, we're talking $CAN too right? LOL.

I know what you mean though gas prices are nutz now. If I remember correctly we're about $.50/gal higher than this time last year.

$2.05?!? I would drive out of my way to get gas that cheap! Try $2.39/gal for regular in CNY on for size.

I remember being pizzed when gas prices broke $1.80, now it is just a memory of the "good ole days."

I drug a trailer and 4 55 gallon drums 19 miles to a station that had gas for $2.07 a gallon on tuesday while everyone close was $2.25, everyone I talked to said I was nuts, well not 4-5 hours after that everyone went up another 15¢ LOL I calculated it out to be a $96 dollar savings and figure $5 for gas to drive there and back so $90 saved, not bad inm
