I have started to accept that we are always going to be screwed on gas prices but it really hit home last week when I filled a 2 gallon can of premium for my snowblower and it came to almost $18

Don't feel too bad .....I remember filling my tank on my 50 Pontiac for $5 . We had gas wars and got gas for 29 cents per Imperial gallon (4.55 liters)  

It's only a matter of time I will have a home made still  !  Potatoes are "still" cheap .

Gas is a f***ing scam.

 

Last night I went out to fill my vehicle up and every station in St. Catharines instantly upped their price as soon as the first reports of a bomb hitting the ground.

 

Every station last night jumped 10 to 15 cents.  How the f**k is this not price gouging?

 

Did every station just receive more expensive gas?  No.  Just a government approved ability to rape your wallet.  Gas price goes up, government gets more money at all areas (sales, tax on businesses at year end, etc).

 

The price of tacos doesn't go up on Taco Tuesday.  You can argue supply and demand, but in that theory when a station has their tanks full, the price should be the lowest possible.

They will blame Putin of course . and one way or another they will recoup every dime they paid out for the covid fiasco . I believe the 'new' prices of everything is related to the great 'reset' we have been hearing about .....High prices = $$$ from the HST , etc . and gasoline /diesel prices sets the stage for all prices. 

One the other hand ,  will I keep seeing those long line ups at  Timmies ,Macdonalds , carwashes , etc ?

The public can whine and complain all they want..  Come election time, all it takes is a carrot in front of their noses and the donkeys/voters will vote in the crooks, con artists, . and carpetbaggers

 

There are no honest politicians no matter what party you want to win or aligns to your beliefs.  They are all crooks from the municipal level up through to the federal level.

The donkeys just keep chasing the "biggest carrot" . But if you know anything about carrots, the bigguns really don't taste that good

There's a rabbit eating a piece of a fat carrot right outside my front door now . He/she comes to visit every night and dines on some spilled bird seed from the feeder in the tree .  We use those big carrots in soups.
