    Grr, I don't know how to represent my rage at the oil companies with smilies, so that will have to do.

    Here we're at $1.12 (CAN) per litre, so about $3.39 (US) per gallon, so we're on par with you folks down south. [Is it bad that it took me about 10 minutes to figure that out....and I'm an engineer?]

    I agree with you, cablejockey.

    I was driving to work yesterday and at the station I usually go to it was $2.59. When I left work it was $2.69. This morning it was $2.79 and when I left this afternoon it was $2.89. Going up 30 cents in 36 hours is ridiculous. I have a hard time believing that the effects of the hurricane could be felt so quickly. I also think it is rather suspicious that it happens just before a major driving holiday. Things that make you go hmmmmm.

    Maybe we should chug on over to namby pamby land where we can find some self confidence for you, you jackwagon!

    This morning when I filled up it was $2.99. When I got back home it was $3.45. I am glad I got it when I did.

    It'd be nice if a gas station here had gas. People are hording it because of the hurricane. I don't really know why, since most power around here has come back on so you don't need a generator anymore. If we don't get some new supply soon (and the Exxon refinery is in the freakin' town, so they don't have but a few miles to go) I'm gonna be rather ticked off. And I'm already pretty tightly wound as it is.

    $2.899 to $3.099 in the suburbs of Chicago, and $3.099 to $3.439 in the city. What's very strange is that it varies widely in the city - 2 gas stations on the same corner, 20 cents a gallon apart.

    Last night, (after going to CNE) the prices were like 134 cents a litre... In gallons, that is about $5.07 a gallon. CRAZY! I'm so glad I don't need to buy gas.

    I just heard this today.

    ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue said he will sign an executive order Friday that will exempt consumers from state motor fuel taxes through the end of September to ``relieve some of the financial burden'' in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
