Gas prices are all over the place right now. Golden at 127.9, revelstoke at 125.9, up to 141.9 on the coast, and here's it's 106.9 - up from 88.9 10 days ago. Not sure what the reason could be for such a huge increase in such a short time period and at such a strange time of the year.

But if I had to guess, I would venture that the Gov't, whether Federal or Provincial, had something to do with it. Since the increases are happening all over the country, I would guess Federal. And it's certainly nothing to do with supply, since Saskatchewan has apparently found a reserve larger than that of Saudi Arabia.

I can't live my life on a bicycle. Anytime I drive my car it's because I'm either needing to pick something up or drop something off.
until they develop a decent replacement for a car I'm sorta stuck with being dependant.
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.

Not sure. Heard it being discussed at the shop yesterday, and I work in the industry. Can't find anything on Google though.

Likely talking about the Bakken formation. Estimates of up to 400 billion barrels of light sweet crude of which 25% is under Sask. Some under SW Manitoba too.
