    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

    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 15ยข 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

    Thanks Pres Clinton.

    I guess hes not out trying to do real work with real customers who dont want to pay you for your time!

    I remember driving past one station because it was 1.09 to a station that was .99 just not that many years ago!

    One quart equals about 1 liter (0.94635 L).
