$1.599 is about average. The $3.14 needs to be checked into. I don't know about Canada, but we Okies have laws against price spiking. That is at the point where nobody will buy any.

Warparty, regular gas prices here are $2.65 a gallon for 87 on land so about $3.05 at the marina. They just jumped $0.35 in 1 day! Bastards!

I didn't realize that. What is the Canadian dollar to the American dollar? At those prices you don't want a big block in your daily driver.

I really don't care about the Gasoline prices. I trade Natural Gas and Crude Oil. The do tend to follow each other at times.

It costs me $1.39 CAN to buy $1.00 US right now so it saves me a bit when I filll up on the US sid. I usually pay around $2.00 US for 87 on the water.

My daily driver is a small car with a 6 and I still burn $100 a week easy!

Just when I get my boat back out of the shop!
It's about $1.57 for 87 and $1.77 for 93 on the road. I don't want to think what it is at the marina.

on my lake it is $2.69 for 89 at one marina, and about a 3 minute drive away from that it is $1.99 for 93, but the weekend boaters can't seem to realize this and the place with 89 is always packed...go figure?!?

Well, if nobody cares what the price of fuel is, neither will the gas companies. Now they say it will go back down after Labor Day, so who is kidding who? Over the years it has just happened too often. Just wait until the profit statements look like in the future. I guess the share holders will be happy!
