    gas prices here are at 2.89 in my little town and 2.79 in the nearest large town about a hundred miles away. I visited the border in west texas this weekend and the gas was 3.06 in presidio texas. What are the gas prices in your local area.

    Your paying $1.09 CDN a liter right? Multiply that by 4 for a rough idea. It's not exact, but gets you close

    BUT ... have you actaully PAID $3.54? I've seen it at $2.99 here yesterday .. but I bought where it was $2.73. To me ... the .26ยข difference in price across the street from each other is proof enough to me that the oil companies are screwing us!

    True true.. I was debating if you guys used litres or gallons .. so we are paying 3.59 per gallon up here (and thats one of the lowest prices in canada) .. so I am back to being bitter.. but thats enough math for this morning..
