Highest price ever ?

Recommended Posts

Just checked Gas Buddy for prices ...... I can't remember the price being this high , ever.  The last 3 prices were 1.39 per liter or about $6.35 for a Can. gallon . I remember paying 35 cents for that gallon !   This IS fishing related because most of the gas I use in my van is for fishing . We also burn it in our boat motors . Some gas in the U.S. is only $2.50 per U.S.gallon & some Canadians still buy their gas there even with our low dollar . But I heard they are dinging us good at the border now for duty on groceries , etc ? ....maybe extra gas cans too ??

Ford won't affect the gas price ... it is a total scam at the end of the day that everyone turns a blind eye to.

He can make the fraudulent carbon tax disappear but he can't force the stations to adjust prices.

According to that article there will be a glut of oil as more electric /hydrogen vehicles are used , including the big rigs .  In the meantime the oil company czars will be lining their deep pockets . Saudi oil production has increased so hopefully the price will come down . ....We in Niagara do have the option of getting our gas from the U.S. (for now).  We have lots of oil in Canada (no refineries) but that oil is destined for China and for those fuel guzzling monster ships (and trucks) that bring us most of our goods....:dunno: 

I believe more anglers are fishing locally these days instead of going north with their boats because the cost of gas is so high......:Gonefishing:

I haven't made a trip north yet this year. I'd made 3 by this time last year...

I don't go because there is no time to commit a full 1-2 weeks at Temagami area. Otherwise it would be worth it to me. 

On a side note, I have zero complaints on local fishing as its been a great year so far.

I buy on the Seneca reserve when I'm over. Something like .78/litre CDN! Freaking joke what is going on! My F150 has a 136litre tank which saves me at least $75CDN/tank! Doug Ford can stick his 10 cents /litre!

Same Here go to the in laws in the falls watch the camara on the bridge when clear head to senaca one stop just in ny. Take 4 cans plus empty truck equal 200 L @ about 98 c a L saves me enough money. Only takes 10 min. If they pull you in pay because it’s just the gst. Not carbon tax hst and all the other taxes.

I go to Seneca or Smokin Joes every week or two and fill my Blazer and at least 2 cans. Right now works out to about .96 per litre. I just bought some non-ethanol 87 gas for $us 2.87 gallon or about .96/litre at Smokin Joes Indian Hill  (only  at the front pumps )to use in my boat and small engines  I usually buy high test for them but unless you buy the Shell for $1.50/litre most high test  still has ethanol. Hoping this is a cheaper alternative. Going up north fishing Friday so I can test it after I empty tank.
