He filled up last night, it was $650!!! It was costing about $400 about the time he sold his. I can guarantee you we would have been living in it if he had kept it. Rates have not gone up at all.
Well, if the carrier's aren't increasing their rates, where are my fuel surcharges going? I buy industrial chemicals in bulk tankers, and the fuel surcharges are as much as 35%!

Ouch.
I've seen Diesel from 4.59 to 4.79 here for the last week. It got so bad we bought a Honda Accord Monday. I had the diesel truck washed at lunch - it will spend most of its time now in the garage.

This is really awful.

The oil industry here in Mexico has been nationalized since 1938, and Mexico does not import any oil - it is energy self-sufficient. We pay the equivalent of $2.20 USD per gallon of gas. Guess we landed in a good place.........I feel so bad for people who can barely afford to drive to work, let alone take family vacations this summer.

Ha ha ha i wish i could pay your 'inflated prices' over here in the UK its a heck of a lot higher. It's nearly 6 a gallon for deisel so thats 11.73US$ per imp gallon (4.54 litres)

I guess one good thing is that it will help clear the old gas guzzling monsters off the road that screw up the environment :s

Exactly Banana.. it STINKS! In Ontario it's $1.25 (I just did a trip for a job interview). Cross the border here into Quebec and it jumps up 20 cents.

BLEH!! I am driving 8 hours tomorrow to Chibougamau and 8 hours back on Sunday and man its going to be expensive on gas!!!!!

You know what Nige.....
Higher is higher no matter where you are. Nobody is used to it.
To tell someone that their gas is $1 less a gallon so they shouldn't complain is just not nice.
Everyone is hurting, everyone is doing what they can to offset the monetary issues affecting thier livelihood.
Some have to cut more than others can imagine, they do what's needed and they just don't whine about it.
