Don't forget "summer gas" hitting the market in the very near future adding 5-7 cents a litre.

Oh...almost forgot...our dollar is on a downward trend losing 2 cents since January as gold skyrockets to impossible new highs.
When the Parkland refinery shut down for whateverthefuck they were doing, the price of gas went up because our price is based on the Seattle spot market. In the news today, they said Parkland being back online will do little to lower prices because the commodities market has already taken that into consideration.
I'm thinking fossil fuels for domestic consumption should not be on the commodities exchange.

Most refineries do a spring turn around. TMX is a couple weeks away. The old pipe will carry more fuels instead of batching.

The only people able to afford to drive are those that don't have to pay for gas. Politicians don't pay so they don't realize how expensive it is.

The measure of leadership is the welfare of their people. Sorry to say but don't look now.

Sounds aboot right. FCL (CO-OP) Is down for 47 days as of yesterday so dont expect any relief. That CO-OP gas and diesel down the street from you comes From Regina not Parkland not Shell or BP in WA either.
The tanks North of the upgrader will be full, and their mixing plant will be operational as raw fuel will be piped down from Ft. Saskatchewan
