Nice prices! Here in PA, we have one of the highest tax rates on gas so we're still about $3.15.

Nope. Just a lot of taxes. We have the highest fuel taxes in the Country at 58.7 cents per gal, just in State tax. Diesel is even higher.

Sounds about right. Cost me $150 to fill the truck from under a quarter tank. When I do fill up, I head either to the reservation where they have gas at 1.05 per liter. Or I try to wait until I make a trip to the border to pick up parcels. It's only a 35 minute drive. When I gas there, I can fill up for around $65. Even with the exchange, it's still way cheaper.

If it were me I'd be packing some gas cans when I hit the States. But then again it may be illegal to pack fuel back across the border.

I believe you can only take one can across the border. I'll have to check on that when I go next week to pick up some gifts we ordered.

As of this afternoon, the price for regular was on average about $1.95.

What gets me is that the price for diesel was $2.90. That's almost a dollar difference and I probably use as much diesel as I do gas. It's not that long ago that the difference between gas and diesel was around 35 cents. Thank the Lord that I can buy tax exempt red diesel for the tractors and mowers.

We're still at 1.24 a liter up here. But it's a known fact that this part of the province always gets screwed with higher prices on most things. The yuppies in Toronto claim it's because we're considered remote and the cost of transportation is more. Funny thing is that most of the products going to Toronto from the west including gasoline passes right through here. Back to the gas prices. Down in Toronto it's hovering around $1 per liter meanwhile we're at 1.24. There's a big investigation into price gouging for fuel prices.
