Hey sinistr, welcome to the boards, good to see another Canadian.

Gas is up to $1.15/liter here, $4.27 a US gallon. YIKES! The stations were lined up for hours yesterday as we got word it was going up.

A family member in the petroleum industry tells me that 40% of our gas dollar goes to the federal government. MORE if you fill up at the PetroCan stations. Sheesh!

I walk. But I do desperately need a new pair of runners, which will set me back a bit, but I'm a sales hound so probably not too much.

I applaud you for walking. I walk to the store and post office. But work is 13 miles away and I would look pretty funny walking down the highway in my Forest Service uniform and boots carrying my lunchbox.

We are out in the country, so we can't walk where we need to go. Yesterday our gas was up to $2.49 and today it was $2.99.

GasBuddy

Have any of you tried GasBuddy to find the cheapest gas in your area? I live in tiny town in the middle of nowhere and it still shows the accurate gas prices for every gas station in town...
