I'm finding it interesting that diesel is more expensive elsewhere.. diesel is cheaper by about 5 - 10 cent a litre here. People tend to try for diesel cars rather than petrol.

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Maple, that's how it was here for a long time. Then, we had the big price hike a few years ago and everything was nearing $5 a gallon. After that, it seemed like diesel just stayed up a lot higher and gas dropped lower.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

The prices bite - that's for sure. I just filled up yesterday for $3.67 (and that's one of the cheapest in area).

$1.33 a litre... sigh. I miss the days when it was $0.76 back in 2006 or 2007.

$3.72 here today, and we have to fill the tank atleast once every 4 days with my dad's job being so far away :/ We're topping off the tank at about $110 right now.

Uh! I was working in CA at the time, I figured one time that I had to work for 7 days just to pay my fuel for driving to work for the month. That's quite a bit considering rent, groceries and bills..lol

So happy I live in Alberta - our gas is only $1.17/litre. One of the lowest prices in the country...guess it's cause we have all the oil/gas here haha.
