Most Expensive Gas in North America

Most Expensive Gas in North America

Postby KenL » Nov 4th, 2017, 8:10 am

Taxes, greed, inefficiencies. They all enter in the biggest rip-off consumers in BC and across Canada face every time we re-fuel at the pumps. The current average price of gas in the US is $0.873 cents per liter, Canadian funds. We're supposed to happily pay $1.45 a liter here in Canada, where we produce massive amounts of fuel??? Gimme a break!

Actually closer to .80 per liter but we are getting screwed either way.
Nowadays it's almost rude to ask a question without Googling it first!

And the US produces 3 times more oil and has 10 times the market (also higher density). What's your point?


Oil > Production
Canada - 3.29 million bbl/day
Ranked 5th.

USA - 9.06 million bbl/day
Ranked 2nd. 3 times more than Canada

We have our Medicare and better pensions for a couple of things. The US is swirling around the toilet bowl of history with their fading education system for the masses, greed by the top 1%ers, gun violence, no health care for many, and corrupt politicians at every level. I'm okay with our gas costing more than USA gas.

Well for the record I'm not.

For as a resource rich country as we are, it's ridiculous that the Americans always get everything cheaper than we do, including our whiskey. :swear:
