Well, that's just a hop, skip, jump and ferry ride for YVRers to get all that cheap gas!

I wonder if there's an answer to this grand mystery?


Perhaps it has something to do with Horgan's brilliant thoughts on building another refinery in the lower mainland

But...but...but... global warming. Man, for a guy who's all for carbon taxes you sure are pissy about the price of gas in BC. You should be happy prices are that high, you're saving the planet.

No simple answers for high B.C. gas prices or impact of pipeline, NEB says

Quote:

There's no easy explanation for why B.C.'s gas prices are so much higher than the rest of Canada, or what will happen to them if the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion goes ahead, according to the National Energy Board's chief economist.
The NEB released a snapshot of the issue Wednesday, breaking down the elements that have driven up the price at the pumps in B.C.
"It's a combination of numerous factors," chief economist Jean-Denis Charlebois told CBC. "One factor is that we're approaching the summer driving season. This means demand is increasing."

Another is the fact that B.C. depends on the Cherry Point Refinery in Washington State for much of its gas, and the exchange rate has recently been less than favourable.
According to the NEB's summary, the four major components that make up the price of gasoline include:
The cost of crude oil: averages 51 cents per litre in Vancouver, or 10 per cent below the Canadian average.
Refining costs: averages 52.1 cents per litre in Vancouver, or about double the national average. This includes all the expenses involved in bringing crude from a wellhead to a refinery, and then completing the refining process.
Marketing margin: averages 10.5 cents per litre, about 69 per cent higher than the rest of Canada. This includes all costs for getting the refined product to the consumer, including transportation, marketing and profit.
Taxes: averages 53.9 cents per litre in Vancouver, or 21 per cent more than the national average.
Charlebois said the NEB has not broken down the various pieces that make up each of these four components to see how they compare in B.C. That means, for example, that he has not analyzed how the average profit margins for gas stations differ across the country.
As for one of the most contested questions in Western Canada, Charlebois said gas prices could go either way if the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project is completed as planned.
"If the extension is approved and built … this will increase capacity and directionally will allow more gasoline to flow from Alberta to B.C., thereby increasing supply and putting downward pressure on prices," he said.
But at the same time, "it will provide Canadian producers greater access to international markets, thereby putting upward pressure on prices of crude oil. How those two forces will net out remains to be seen."

The gas arrives in Vancouver - is shipped over to the island and sold for less.

That makes complete sense.

The island does not pay the 10 cent per litre hydro levy . The GST is applied after the hydro levy , a tax on a tax .

The reasons moonbats haven't made the leap from gas to electric is they aren't homeowners and their landlord has no plans to add charging stations or they street park, won't pay or don't have time for a charge.

I've run across far too many of these faux environmentalists who really do not believe they should have to live up to the principles they expect from everyone else.
Look at all the phony Hollyweird douchebags. Too many of those enviro-cretins are generating more emissions and leaving a larger carbon foot print in one year than the average family will in a lifetime. That's why they insist the rest of us must do our part, so they can continue enjoying their jet-set lifestyle. It's all about feeling good about "doing something about it" without actually having to put themselves out doing something about it. Sounds like Groper's vacations.

Ironically, Hoid drives an ICE powered vehicle and is currently whining about the price of gas in BC while I gave up driving altogether. I'll admit I voluntarily surrendered my licence for medical reasons, not because of any sort of environmental altruism. Yet Hoid is a willing slave to the oil companies while I, am not. And yet I'm the "White natty" because I'm pro-pipeline so HE can get cheaper gasoline.

The KEY BEEF that HOID holds against "white natty`s" .................................................. ..........................


is that they REFUSE TO SWALLOW LIE-beral propaganda without QUESTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals BELIEVE they are ENTITLED to tell us to "shut up"............................................... ................


when we argue any point with them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was that drunken sot Campbell, one of the less illustrious premiers of this province, who foisted that moniker upon us here in the Interior. We never had a say and every time I use it, I do so with a heavy dose of sarcasm.

As opposed to coastal BC where Canada's biggest phonies and hypocrites live. Please, whine to us some more about how you're getting screwed on the price of gasoline.

ICE seems like a good thing to power a car with. WE got lots of that with more every year.
