Rats..it is photo-shopped. I called the station...which is what I should have done at the outset.

I understand Vancouver gas prices are among the highest in North America. They shot up here then dropped 2 cents a litre in the last few days. Thankfully diesel while not cheap is stable for the moment.

Is that per litre or per gallon? If it's per litre it's too much, if per gallon it's correct. [emoticon]

BC has gone the way of California. The Gov has imposed many green taxes that only hurts the economy. $1.53 a litre and poss higher than $1.60 per litre by summer. Rest of the Prairie Provinces are down to .98 to 1.02 a litre and then back up in Ontario with the same mentality Gov to 1.39 last time I was there this winter

Just to put this in perspective for U.S. customers, the $1.53 (Canadian) per liter is equivalent to about $4.46 U.S. dollars per gallon. Still ridiculously high but no worse than some places in Southern California, for instance.

Across the border here, near Port Huron, MI, the price per US gallon was US$2.24 at Sam's Club, and the area low average was US$2.29.
That same US gallon in US currency in Ontario would cost US$3.54.
ONTARIO, what's wrong with this picture??????

You are exactly right, especially in the Lower Mainland. It is beyond ridiculous and our carbon tax is going up again at the beginning of April. [emoticon]
