Why is gas cheaper in Nova Sco­tia?

Edmonton Journal - - LETTERS -

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
