IT’S a gaS … again
I was in ontario Monday and tuesday of this week, a place where gas prices used to be much higher than in alberta. not any more. Porsche had brought some of us there to drive the new Cayenne sport utility vehicle, so we left from to and journeyed in the rain through small towns on narrow roads. once you get out of that big grey block that is toronto, ontario is really attractive, even in the rain. anyway, I digress. one of the interesting things I noticed was the price of gasoline. In the big city, regular gasoline was $1.22 to $1.24. the further we got, the lower the price became. even in “tourist” areas where the demand for fuel is lower and the cost of getting it there (I assume) somewhat higher, the cost declined the further we got from to.
Just 15 minutes out, the price had dropped to $1.20, then $1.19 and so on. the lowest pump price I saw at a major outlet was $1.16 per litre. Happy motoring folks.
