For the past long weekend, gas was cheaper in Nova Scotia than it was in Alberta, where we extract and produce it rather than import it from the likes of Saudi Arabia.
Also, note the difference in price between regular and premium gas: nine cents in Nova Scotia, 21 cents in Alberta. Why the big difference? I note the difference between West Texas Intermediate and Western Canada Select was $45.75 in the Journal today.
Are we as consumers paying the difference at the pump to cover this loss? Methinks we are being gouged by the oil companies. John Searle, Edmonton
Joe CCCP: Once again unable to answer a simple question Joe? Why do you come here to keep displaying your ignorance? Doesn’t it get disheartening that you are incapable of intelligently participating in a conversation?
Gas prices today on Gas buddy: Halifax 126.9, Edmonton 120.6, with Costco selling for 112.9. So obviously this letter writer is in error. Taxes are considerably higher in Nova Scotia compared to Alberta for everything. If you don't like paying for gas here, move to Nova Scotia and don't let the door hit your ass on the way out!
Joe CCCP: and the letter writer was talking about last week-end when our prices were $128.9.

Joe CCCP: This letter is about the price of gas in Nova Scotia not New Brunswick
John, you need to do some research before you write a dumb ass letter like that. Seriously. You sound like the guys who write in every once in awhile to complain that Alberta is making equalization payments to Quebec.
