Well I'm not right off the 101 or anything, but still. It used to drop anywhere from 3-8 cents daily. It was still $1.83 this morning I remember filling up over the summer and it was like $50. I was stunned.

The best part is that Canada has the most oil after the Saudis.

I'm in Minneapolis right now and it's $1.59. It was $1.47 in Phoenix this afternoon. My dad said the difference is due to the "winter mix" of fuel.

$1.57 for regular yesterday.

Carek: They might be climbing again because OPEC cut production (I think).

Our corner station has been $1.95 for about 2-3 weeks now Usually he's quite competitive. There was one period when all the stations nearby were LESS than his pricing, even the station across the street (which is unheard of!). Those guys are back to $2.03.

Before I left on vacation in mid-Dec, it was around 76 cents/litre at most gas stations in my area. This morning I noticed it was back up to 89 cents. Hopefully it will go back down before my next fill-up.

I'm honestly expecting $4.50/gal again once the weather warms up. Now that they've found out that they can get away with it, it'll be the new norm. $4.50/gal in the summer, then $1.50 in the winter to cool everyone's jets - until the next summer.

I agree, cydewaze--just because they *can*!

A week ago, it was $1.36 here in central Indiana. By last Friday, it was $1.59. Monday it was $1.83. Today it is $1.99. WTF, indeed!

Last time I filled up it was 94.7c a litre. This was E10 and I had to use a voucher, but a tank is lasting me 2 weeks at the moment. I love going days without driving anywhere.

I'm gonna start on the premium now that it's so much cheaper.
