    Not sure I understand what you mean. Someone recommended this site to check areas before. http://www.gasbuddy.com/ Does that help? Sorry didn't see your poll when the thread first came up.

    This is like mowing someone's yard for $50 one week, $55 the next and $60 next! I need to find one of those lowballing scrub gas stations! :D

    I just paid 99.5 cents a litre today! Do the math... at 3.79 litres per US gallon that is 3.77 per gallon. Figure in the exchange at 80 cents and it comes out to $4.52 US per gallon....ouch!

    Shepherd, that is why I don't really like complaining about our prices, but rather the whole high price thing in general. Our prices are mild compared to the world economy. We just got spoiled and now its kicking us in the rear because we cant refine it fast enough to meet demand.
