    gas on the westcoast of Canada is as follows

    Regular 102.9 per liter

    Premium 113.9 per liter

    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?

    Yea our stations are going up .10 at a time. All this is based on pure speculation in the markets. Nothing to do with demand and or a shortage. Oil companies and countries are making huge profits. The worlds money is being consolidated in the hands of a few. Just like somebody unleashed a monster.
    I don't know what will happen when and if it most likley reaches 3 to 4$ a gallon. Might just come out better parking everything
