IT’S a gaS … again

Calgary Sun - Autonet - - NEWS -

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.
