Let's Talk About the Price of Gas!


Six years ago today, I complained about the price of gas.

I'm old enough to remember a time when I wouldn't fill up the tank if the price exceeded 50¢ a litre. In the mid-nineties, this was entirely possible. I was driving an '85 Ford Escort and she didn't get a drop until the sign said forty-something. I was able to drive for quite a while abiding by this rule.
Today, we're paying twice that. I'm seeing signs for 92¢ a litre. I managed to pay a mere 86¢ a litre yesterday and I was happy to find it. Prices have never been this high in this neck of the woods and we're bracing for the inevitable $1 a litre.

That's right, I was complaining that the price of gas was approaching $1 a litre.  Imagine how awesome it would feel to find a gas station selling gas today for a mere buck a litre?

The average price of gas in Ontario today is $1.27 / litre and rising.  Let's talk about it!
